YOUR LAST 30 DAYS

IF YOU HAD ONLY 30 DAYS LEFT, HOW WILL YOU LIVE?

30 days

IMAGINE THIS – When you woke up this morning, the phone rings.  You’re still in your pajamas, drinking your coffee.  You stand up and pick up the phone.

You hear your doctor’s voice.  In a very somber tone, he says, “I have to say this to you because I’m your friend and I’m your doctor.  I’m now holding in my hand the results of your medical tests.  I’m very sorry, but you’re going to die in 30 days.”

The shock is overwhelming.  The room around you starts to spin.  You sit down.  “Thirty days?  But that’s so soon…”

I know this is scary.

Let me ask you.

HOW WOULD YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE DURING THOSE 30 DAYS?

What appointments will you make?

What appointments will you drop?

What will you include in your daily schedule?

What will you prioritize?

What will you give away?

What will you say to your loved ones?

What will you not say to your loved ones?

How will you pray?  What will you pray for?

STARTING TODAY, LIVE THE NEXT 30 DAYS AS THOUGH THEY WERE YOUR LAST.

OWN TREASURES IN HEAVEN

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today:

wisdom 081715

A young man approached Jesus and said, “TEACHER, WHAT GOOD MUST I DO TO GAIN ETERNAL LIFE?”

He answered him, “Why do you ask me about the good?  There is only One who is good.  If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”

He asked Him, “Which ones?” And Jesus replied, “You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; honor your father and your mother; and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

The young man said to Him, “All of these I have observed.  What do I still lack?”  Jesus said to him, “IF YOU WISH TO BE PERFECT, GO, SELL WHAT YOU HAVE AND GIVE TO THE POOR, AND YOU WILL HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN. THEN COME, FOLLOW ME.”

When the young man heard this statement, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

-From the Gospel of Matthew 19:16-22

Reflections:

*Do we see ourselves as the young man?

*Do we wish to attain eternal life?

*Are we willing to give up our earthly possessions and desires to attain such?

*Are we willing to follow Jesus?

Saint of the Day:

St. Clare Montefalco, pray for us.

You deserve eternal life,

Brother Mo
