This past couple of weeks, we've two media reminders for you and I of the inevitability of death. One is the untimely death of pop star Michael Jackson at only age 50 (gone too soon!). The other one was that of Farrah Fawcett, a favorite star in "Charlie's Angels" series. Regardless of what age you are in right now, death brings about the reality of one of our greatest fears in this temporal, earthly life.... While all of us are so busy -- trying to create wealth, raise families, enjoy pleasures, love, relationships etc -- we all need to take time to reflect. We all need a pregnant pause. Common are the countless times when our busy preoccupations and relationships tend to cloud us of our real purpose in this life. While many of us feel bad witnessing deaths of those we care about, we're reminded of our own mortality. All of life is a preparation for death to meet our Maker! Are you ready to die and meet your Maker? Where are you going after death? Find this out before it's too late.
How do I know I'm ready to meet my Maker?
