Okay, this seems a bit bizarre: God tells Moses, “Get Aaron and his son Eleazar and bring them with you up to Mount Hor. I want you to transfer the office of high priest from Aaron to Eleazer. And then Aaron is going to die on the mountain.”
Anyone reading this post knows their birth date, but none of us knows his or her death date.
What do you think he did with his last few hours?
- Did he need to apologize to someone? Ask their forgiveness?
- Did he need to make amends?
- Pass along some vital information to Eleazer?
- Say “I love you” to someone dear to him?
- Give one last kiss? One last embrace?
James wrote, “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone” (James 4:14).
You and I don’t know what our death date will be, so our best bet is to live today like it’s our last day. What do you need to do with your last few hours?
- Are you ready to meet God?
- Do you need to ask Christ to forgive your sins?
- Is there someone who needs your forgiveness?
- Do you need to make something right somewhere?
- Is there vital information you need to share?
- Does someone need to hear “I love you”?
- Who do you need to hug or kiss?
Don’t wait for tomorrow, because tomorrow may never arrive. Live today like it’s your last day. Because it may very well be your last day with us.
