I have always been a fan of sci-fi and of fantasy movies. If you ask my why, I would not be able to explain. But I will line up to see Star Wars, Star Trek, and Lord of the Rings type of films. I just enjoy them. One of my favorites was the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. In the last film of the trilogy, one of the main characters and his friend find themselves at what they believe is the end of their journey and believe that their death is imminent. Frodo Baggins says a phrase that I have repeated often “…here, at the end of all things.”
Within the span of a week I have been informed of the passing of a former co-worker; the passing of a former co-worker’s husband; and the passing of a co-worker’s sister – all under 70 years old. God has told us that time is like a vapor – that it appears for a little while, and then it is gone (James 4:14). We know from our own personal experiences how fragile and temporary life is. So I wonder when we come to “…the end of all things,” what will we feel was the purpose of our lives. Did we focus:
At the end of all things, what will be said about our lives?
To God Be The Glory For All That He Has Done
