The Time is Always Now

What would you do if you had one day to live? If you knew without a doubt that you would not be here 24 hours from now, what do you wish you’d have done with your life? A man on his deathbed isn't concerned with his trophies or trinkets just as a woman doesn’t care about her teacup collection, because none of these things really matter in the end. When all the accumulations of life are set aside, most of those on the brink of eternity discover that God and people are what truly matter, and having this knowledge is key to improving your life now, if you understand it and act upon it.

Again, if your life was going to end tomorrow, what matters most when you look back? Whatever it is, this is your golden moment to begin straightening out the wayward places and living a life without regrets. When you keep this eternal perspective in mind, priorities often fall into place. 

The Bible tells us that life is like a vapor that vanishes away (James 4:14). Jesus also said, “I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). To adjust your circumstances pray for guidance and then act upon your “death-bed” discoveries to make the needed changes.

The time is always now.
