Your Affairs In Order?

I love old western movies. Quite often there will be a scene where someone will ask the doctor about the condition of a gunfighter who just lost a shoot-out. The doctor would take off his spectacles,  pull out his handkerchief from his back pocket and begin cleaning them. And then with great emotion, he would say, “It’s time he puts his affairs in order.” A polite way to say death is certain and he needs to be prepared to meet God.

The doc’s comment is good advice for anyone who is dying. But wouldn’t be better to ‘put our affairs in order ‘ NOW before we are facing the death angel.  No one likes to think about how fragile their life is. And no one knows if their life will be cut ‘short.’

So it seems wise that we should ask for forgiveness, make restitution, pay our debts, and apologize  long before we are called to meet God.

  1. Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will send this article to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a very good read. Many thanks for sharing! http://www.yahoo.net

  2. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the net will be much more useful than ever before. http://www.yahoo.net
