“It is a sad thing to die like a fool, as they do that anyway shorten their own days, and those who make no provision for another world.” (Matthew Henry)

A substantial percentage of people shorten their own days by their lifestyle choices—drugs, alcohol, dietary and activity habits. Poor lifestyle choices are a result of a lack of education and/or a lack of will. That applies even more importantly to a lack of provision for another world. “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God’” (1) “…[God’s] invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world  in the things that have been made. So they [mankind] are without excuse” (2). Man is a master of self-delusion. No one even seeks God (3), until God gives him a new nature and new eyes to see His truth. “No one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again” (4).

Don’t die like a fool. “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (5).

See you in church.
