DEATH - HOW IT AFFECTS YOU

How does death affect you?


A school classmate, Tim McIntyer transitions to eternity. Death is only a comma. We don’t die, just our bodies. As we all age, more classmates will move on to their next life after death.


The author of Psalms wrote: ”Our lifetime is seventy years or, if we are strong, eighty years. But the years are full of hard work and pain. They pass quickly, and then we are gone. Teach us how short our lives really are so that we may be wise.“ (Psalms‬ ‭90‬:‭10‬, ‭12‬ ‭NCV‬)


As our friends and family pass, it causes us to pause and contemplate our life - and death. King Solomon once wrote: ”It is better to go to a funeral than to a party. We all must die, and everyone living should think about this.“ (Ecclesiastes‬ ‭7‬:‭2‬ ‭NCV‬)


A very close assistant to Wendy died in our business. Kelly was only 38 and died in life-flight of a sudden and unexpected brain aneurism. She did not know she was old and close to death at 37. So what’s the take-away?


I think the Psalmist said it best; “Teach us how short our lives really are so that we may be wise.”

So what is wise?


I believe it’s loving God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength and loving others as ourself, as we live out our lives now.



GOD, help us strike that unique balance of enjoying life, yet serving, loving, and forgiving others as we honor you in all things. Mr. McIntyre, we will see you in heaven. LORD, bless his whole family in this sad time, but refresh their minds and hearts as they see Tim in heaven.

In Jesus’ Name We All Pray - Amen ♥️
