I made it to the shops the other day at two minutes before closing time. They were asking people to go to the registers, so I bolted around the aisles, picking up anything I had on my list and anything else I could find as well. I knew my time was short and I had to make some split-second decisions. I had my daughter with me and when we made it to the checkouts she was freaking out, because she thought we’d get locked up all night. I explained to her that we would pay for our stuff and they would let us out. We had two different perspectives. I was in a rush to get as much as I could in my short time. She thought we were in a rush, because we were doomed to supermarket imprisonment if we didn’t make it to the doors in time. I think we can have different perspectives about our days on earth too. Some people want to make the most of their time and be effective on this earth. Others may be crippled with fear and have the wrong perspective about our time on earth. Doctors tell us that 10 out of 10 people die. We’ll all face our creator one day and we’ve got to make sure we’re ready. And we need to do what God has called us to do. I love what the Bible says about this. In 2 Timothy 4:5 it says: “Keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.” No matter what comes your way, lets do what God has called us to do. Lets be prepared and lets keep eternity and heaven in mind in all that we do.
