If you type in the words: “Gone Too Soon” at Google…you get over 40 million hits! It’s not just because of MIchael Jackson’s song…though some say that was ironically the case for him.
But…the bible literally says this will be the case for every person who walks this earth as human. We cannot live forever…on the earth. But, what is important is how we will spend our eternity after we depart from this life.
There are funerals and Homegoings each and every day…and no matter how fabulous the celebration may be…that ceelebration cannot put a person in heaven or hell…it is decided long before that. It is up to each of us. We have the final say in how we will live our eternity. Please think about and pray about this if you have not made a decision on this.
Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
