DAILY READINGS: Numbers 1:1-54; Psalm 144:1-145:21; Mark 11:27-12:17

Prepare to meet your God. Amos 4:12

Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. Matthew 24:44

I talked to a friend some years ago. He said to me, “I have prepared for many things in this life. I have made provision for my wife should I die, but I have not prepared to meet God.” Not long after that conversation, he died. How tragic. Life is short. Are you ready to meet God if you should die today? Are you ready if Jesus returns tonight? Prepare to meet your God. —J. Fleming

We are walking on life’s pathway, trav’ling to eternity,
Where our loved ones went before us, to their final destiny.
I must choose the road that I will travel, if one day in glory I’ll be,
Then on that day when this life’s over, heaven will be home for me.
—J. Fleming
