In Canada, average life expectancy for male babies born in 2012 is 80 years, and for female babies born in 2012 it is 84. For both genders, life expectancy increased on average from 77 in 1990 to 82 in 2012. While one’s life expectancy may be improving, there is no assurance that we will live that long. Wise Solomon warned, “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. “ Admittedly, this is a solemn thought which most prefer not to think about. But making preparation for our future won’t make it happen any sooner. And it does not need to be something we dread. As a matter of fact, when we acknowledge Isaiah’s words that “All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way…” and when we respond to Paul’s counsel to “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ …” we can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are ready to meet our Maker.
