I read recently the unusual story of a kindergarten child who was learning his numbers by counting how many times the clock chimed. Soon he had mastered numbers one to twelve. Then inexplicably, something odd happened. The clock chimed thirteen times. “what comes after number 12 Mommy?” “Thirteen” she answered. “Wow!” exclaimed the child. “It’s thirteen o’clock, later than it’s ever been before!” How good of God to give us this precious gift of time in this life, to get ready for the next life. But we should be careful to heed the warning He gave us when He said, “Now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation.” As we view the current startling, frightening events taking place around the world, it is clear that, “It’s later than it’s ever been before.” Are we ready for the life to come?
