I read once that an ancient headstone, in an old courtyard in England, carried this inscription: “Remember, man that passeth by, as thou are now, so once was I; And as I am, so thou must be. Prepare thyself to follow me.” Underneath those words, one with a comic flair wrote, “To follow thee is not my intent, unless I know which way thou went!”

Though we may laugh at such matters, we do learn a very important point. We will all die and need to prepare for the Judgment – “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Heb. 9:27). In the day of Judgment we will have to give an account for what we have done (2 Cor. 5:10), for what we have said (Mt. 12:36-37), and for what we haven’t done (Mt. 25). “Watch therefore; for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Mt. 24:42).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
