If you knew that today would be the last day of your life, what would be the number one thing on your priority list for today? That question, as much as any I know, reveals what is, or at least what should be, our top priority.
Take a moment to really thoughtfully consider this question. For many of us the answer would be sharing the Gospel with a loved one who doesn’t know the Lord. Others would say, “I have unconfessed sin in my life that I need to get right with God before I go out into eternity.” Maybe there is someone you have wronged and never asked for forgiveness or offered to make restitution. Do you want to leave this world with that testimony behind you? If today were your last, would you be pleased with the expressions of love you have made to your spouse or children?
Remember, if you treat every day as your last, someday you’ll be right. That’s why you should redeem the time.
