Mary Tyler Moore, Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher, Prince, and Stewart MacLean all died in the past few months. For a short while, the deaths of these famous people may cause some sober thoughts. When hair slowly grays, energy is reduced, and wrinkles appear. we realize that passing from this life is not just something that happens to others. Like it or not, the ticking of the clock reminds us, the newspaper obituaries thunder it, death is coming for us all, young and old. Well did the Psalmist write, “So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” That wisdom leads us to face the reality of our mortality and admit we are part of a fallen race. When we ask Christ for the gift of eternal life, He gives it, as well as forgiveness and peace. We no longer need to fear death. Please reflect on this today.
