“Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” -Jesus Christ, Matthew 4:17 (NLT)
Young man: “I just found out my favorite college professor has cancer.”
Old man: “I am so sorry to hear that. You know, I just spoke with my best friend from high school and learned he lost his brother, his mother, his sister-in-law, and his father–all in one year.
Life is so much more fragile than we realize. Life is so much shorter than we recognize. The kingdom of heaven is near.
Turn your heart toward God our Father.
While you still can.”
