If we knew we only had one day to live, what would we do differently?
I realize the challenge of answering a hypothetical question, especially when considering the mindset of our culture. We tend to think we have years and years. The result causes us to procrastinate what is important…and urgent.
For the sake of the next few seconds, how would we answer the question?
Would we spend all our time on Facebook, surfing the internet, watching movies, worrying about what we are going to wear?
Would we be consumed with the appearance of our house?
Would we put off talking to a neighbor, coworker, friend, or relative about Jesus?
I am sure a number of thought provoking and convicting questions could be asked.
We do not know how many days we have left. While we may not “believe” it, intellectually we know the imminence of death.
As spiritual leaders we must regularly ask what we would do if we only had one day. If we know the answer to the question, then I pray we will prioritize our lives to act accordingly.
