Life is complicated
Life is complicated. Living well is not easy. What do you think you will value as the most important things you have given your time and energy to at the ending of the day?
When CS Lewis was 9 years old his mother Flora was at home, in bed dying. Albert, CS Lewis’ father was trying to comfort her. In the middle of the night he spoke to her of the goodness of God. Flora, moved by what Albert said responded with the question that struck her deeply, “What have we done for Him?” Albert never forgot those words.
How interesting. As she lay dying Flora wasn’t concerned about her comfort, she wasn’t worried about what would be done with her possessions, her first concern wasn’t even about the family she would be leaving behind. Her most pressing thought centered on her relationship with God.
Life is complicated. What matters at the end of our lives is not what kind of house we lived in, or kind of clothes we wore, not how much money we had, or our high ranking in society. What will matter is our relationship with God and what we have done for Him. How amazing that life comes with a manufacturers hand book (the Bible - some say BIBLE stands for Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth), and your own personal Life Coach.
