Recently Volkswagen car-maker recalled up to 11 million vehicles, following the scandal over its rigging of emissions tests. A while back Toyota had massive recalls, and before that it was GM doing it. In light of these recall issues, one enterprising church had on its billboard. “A car is not the only thing that can be recalled by its maker.” In fact, every one of us will one day be “recalled” by our Maker. Interestingly, when the Bible addresses the “recall” by our Maker, there is a difference between how it describes the un-prepared and the prepared. In the case of one person man who made no preparation for the next life, whose philosophy was “eat drink and be merry” we read, “this night your soul shall be “required of you.” Later, referring to a man who had made the proper preparations, it is said that “he was carried by the angels” into the next life. The Prophet Amos of old urges us all, in light of our inevitable “recall” to “prepare to meet your God.” Good advice. That’s a minute of truth!
