We all have to face up to death during our lifetime!
Dealing with death is never easy, particularly when it involves someone very close to us. The experience can sometimes be shattering and often affect us for years after the event.
However, many of us seem to think we are bullet proof and immune from serious accident or instant death. We tend to think it can never happen to us – only to someone else.
The mere mention of death labels us as being morbid, yet our movie and television screens constantly serve us up programs where people seem to delight in destroying each other. It would appear our brains have been conditioned to accept it is OK, as long as it’s the baddies who get the chop.
During the world pandemic our nightly TV news gave us numbers of those who had died the previous day and in which country the deaths had occurred.
When Jesus was around, He told us we will not know the day or the hour when we will meet Him face to face. Maybe we should take the time to think about how prepared we really are for such a meeting.
I’m Peter Mack and that’s faith.
