What’s in a day is the ultimate question. What would you do if you only had one day to live? If God told you that you only had one day left on this earth, would you make changes to the things you are already doing? One day can make all the difference in the world. One day you can break someone’s heart, mend old friendships, renew your faith, give us the chance to witness, live life to the fullest or to do unspeakable acts.
What’s in a day? Life is fragile but there is so much we can do in our lives. We affect someone in every aspect of our lives without even realizing it. I look back on times when I was younger and at the present time. I see things I could have done differently.
You might ask why I am writing this type of thing on this blog. The reason is: I had a dream that God was asking me how I wanted to die. As I searched through the best way to die, I reflected on how it would affect others. If I died in my sleep, I wouldn’t be able to say my goodbyes because it would happen rapidly. If I died from other ways like having cancer, I would at least have the chance of saying goodbye even though I might suffer.
The thing is no one knows the day or the hour when they are going to die. Not even the ones who die with cancer. We might have that opportunity to make our final arrangements and say our goodbyes but we might have more times to do things that we shouldn’t. When we live here on this earth, we might not have any intention on hurting others but many have. You might say I’ve never cursed anyone, never hit anyone, never murdered, never stole from anyone. I want to say that even through all of this, you have hurt someone in one way or another. No one lived a perfect life except Jesus.
If we neglect to help others, we have hurt them. If we have neglected to give someone money or food when they needed it, we have hurt them. So my question for you is what would you do if you only had one day left?
