A man went to the doctor, who told him that he had a bad illness and only one year to live. So he decided to talk to his pastor. After the man explained his situation, he asked the pastor if there was anything he could do.
“What you should do is go out and buy a late ’70s Dodge truck. Then go and get married to the ugliest woman you can find, and buy yourselves an old trailer house and put it halfway up a mountain.”
The man asked, “Will this really help me live longer?”
“No,” replied the pastor, “but this will be the longest year of your life. You’ll be begging for it to be over.”
The fact is, for some of us, we do have just one year left to live – maybe less. The Bible says it is appointed to man to die – and then comes the judgment. But that is a date that is found only on God’s calendar. Your job? Stay prepared.
