Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
The wise man said that the living know that they are going to die. I sometimes wonder if people today realize that. We are all marching towards death. It is something we like to hide from, not think about, not prepare for, etc. We make up words to take away the fear, the pain, the apprehension. We drown the thought of our death with many other things but according to the Bible and obvious truth we are all going to die.
We should know that and live like it is true. If I am going to die I need to make preparations. If I am going to die I need to appreciate every day of life that I am given. If I am going to die I need to use my life to accomplish something of value.
Are you ready to die? Are you living life like one that is dying? Are you prepared to face eternity? Will you accomplish anything with your life or will you just float through?
