If You Only Had a Day Left…

The end of one year and the beginning of a new one is often a time for reflection. So here’s something to ponder. What would you do if you only had a day left to live?

I heard about a famous writer who was asked what he would do if he knew he only had six minutes to live. His answer? “Type faster.”

Suppose you found out you only had 24 hours to live. In fact, what if you somehow knew we all only had 24 hours left. You don’t know how it will happen, but you know you won’t be here at this time tomorrow. What would you do?

Sure, this is a silly hypothetical situation. But use it, if you will, to focus on what you value the most.

Would your supply of storage food matter?

Would you be ready in case you had to defend yourself against raging hoardes?

Would you stay put, waiting and watching as events unfolded? ?

Or would you run like mad?

Would you make things right with loved ones and friends?

Would you get right with God?

or would you simply do what you do every other day and pass quietly out of existence?

  1. I would make sure all my family and friends know I love them, cook up one of the steaks I have in the freezer and fry some potatoes, and relax. I have already made my peace with God. all the rest is unimportant.

  2. I would make sure that I am right with God and make sure that my family and friends would know that I love them and I would forgive any wrong that any of them have done to me. Then I would try to make sure that others did the same before it all ended.
