DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 21:19-22:20; Lam. 2:1-22; 1 Timothy 5:1-25

it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. Hebrews 9:27, KJV

An 80-year-old man knew it would happen, but, wishing not to inconvenience anyone, he assured his family he would drive himself to the funeral home. He did and was found reclining, but dead, in his car safely parked at the funeral home. Hopefully, he had prepared for the balance of his journey into the presence of God. Our verse concludes by saying there is “after death the judgment.” Are you ready to meet God if you were called on to do so today? —Arnot McIntee

Where will you spend eternity? This question comes to you and me.
Tell me, what shall your answer be? Where will you spend eternity?
—E. A. Hoffman
