What Really Matters in Life?
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Ps 90:12
Settle down and find out what really matters in life. I have a clue for you. What really matters in life is what will matter when time is no more.
For instance if you are told that you have only 24 hours left to live, what will you do with the last 24 hours of your life on earth? Would you want to go and get a haircut, buy the latest suit, go to the stadium and watch your famous football team, watch the best movie that you have not yet watched, or fix the latest hair extension? What will you do with your last 24 hours, if you were given the opportunity?
I believe that you would want to be intact with God and get lost in Him. You would want to make any deposit that you have not yet made in eternity; you would want to win your last soul; you would want to reconcile with anybody you have quarrelled with, you would like to make sure that your life is clean; you would like to make sure that you do the things that matter.
My counsel to you is- that thing that you will do in the last 24 hours of your life, do it now because one day, you will have only 24 hours left. What will matter when time is no more is what matters now that you have time.
One of the challenges of our generation is that people don’t like to hear the truth. In Church if the pastor says, ‘You shall succeed,’ everybody will shout Amen! If he says, ‘Whether you are a Christian or not, prosper!’ people will shout amen! But the proof of love is truth; the person who hates you will hide the truth from you. Brethren, the truth is that what matters now is what will matter within your last 24 hours on earth; settle down now and find out what really matters in life.
Remember this: What matters now is what will matter within your last 24 hours on earth.
1. Those things that you would do if you had only 24 hours left to live, do them now!
