Yesterday was Palm Sunday. It began the last week of Christ's life. He knew exactly what was to happen in the coming week.
What would you do if you knew you had one week to live? Would that television program be so important? When you talk with your friends, would you discuss what Suzy Q was wearing? Would you tell them how Bubba hurt your feelings? Would you tell them about the cashier who was rude? Would you complain about your job? Would you complain about the weather? Would you complain about the government?
This is how we spend our time. Are these things really important? Unlike Christ, we do not know how long we have to live. We might have less than seven days left on this earth. Let's reflect on these thoughts this week as we look forward to celebrating the day Christ gave his life for our salvation.
