Imagine if a spouse or friend went out to the supermarket and never returned because they were in a freak car accident and died? Well, that reality hit home to a very close colleague and friend of mine this week. Her husband ran a simple errand, ended up in the hospital, and died shortly thereafter. Needless to say, my friend is beyond devastated.
These things happen. Life is so fragile that we take it for granted. So, don’t take anything for granted. Hug a loved one(s) today. Make every moment count. You never know when the light of life gets blown out.
It’s times like these when we ask God, “What gives???” “What’s the sense of a senseless accident that takes a loved one away.”
Our sense is not God’s sense. He doesn’t micro-manage the ebbs and flows of life. His is the big picture of life, an eternal life with Him. This life is just a momentary blip on the timeline of eternity. In fact, eternity is the absence of time as we know it. It just is.
I know this sounds like more religious “mumbo-jumbo” to rationalize why someone dies on the way back from running a simple errand. It’s not. It’s simply the belief that there’s a better, eternal life waiting for us. If you don’t believe in that then nothing in this life at all makes sense. Nothing!!!
Hug a loved one(s) today!!!
