So many people are so careful to prepare for their retirement. They save for many years to make sure they have enough money to live out their later years in comfort and ease. All of that takes a lot of planning and discipline. And it comes from the desire to not take chances with the future. Why is it then that people don’t spend nearly the same amount of time thinking about and planning for the “real” retirement? The one appointment that we all must keep. Death can literally happen at any moment – you could have aneurysm or a heart attack. Or another driver could cross the center line and hit you head on at full speed. This is not some far off, potential future event. It is an event that could happen at any time. What is more, Christ could return at any time. Therefore, we should all be prepared!
