Death is Inevitable

This week has seemingly been all about death. Right now our General Manager is in California for his father-in-law's funeral. A few days ago we found about about the death of a good friend. His dad flew him from Kansas to Minnesota to buy a motorcycle. While he was driving it back to Kansas he was killed by a truck driver. He was only 39 years old and leaves behind a young wife and two young children. He was a godly man and loved by everyone in Meade County, KS and beyond. What a shocker! Then one of my former co-workers from Westwood One in Phoenix informed me that an old friend of mine has terminal cancer and may only live a few more days. Death is such a downer. The only good news is that they all are Christians. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.

All of this has caused me to be very pensive and introspective. James 4:14 says "Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone." Tomorrow is not promised to us. We need to live life to the fullest. Live each day as if it's your last. And we need to cherish our friends and family members while we have them.
