The Scripture:

Matthew 6:19

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Our thoughts:

As we get older, we often begin to think about death. This is a subject that none of us like to think about but can not be ignored! As sure as we are born, one day we are going to die. The real question is what will happen to us when we do? Please search your live, read your bible, and pray. Look deep into your own heart and make sure you have peace with God. Make sure that your focus is on God and the life after this one, not on this world and the thing it has to offer. REMEMBER: We are never promised tomorrow!

Our prayer for you:

Dear Heavenly Father, It is our prayer today, as we come to you, that you help us to understand you better. Help us to truly know you and your love. Lord let us not worry so much about this world. Help us to not worry about riches or fame. Help us to realize that we can't take it with us. Help us to live a life that is pleasing to you. We so often think of death and get afraid. Help us not to fear death but to know that all is right with you and that once we die, we will be with you forever! Please help us to accept death and that it is not a bad thing. Let us know that death is not forever but is just a short step to the other side. It is a passage way to peace and love eternal in Heaven. Please help us to make sure that we have accepted you as our God, asked you for forgiveness, and are ready to go when you call. Give us the peace that only you can give. In Jesus sweet name we pray, Amen.
