Keep the ones you got now

From Ed Boggess, again.

In the little book Children’s Letters To God, Jane wrote: “Dear God, Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don’t you just keep the ones you got now?” Now there is an idea. But the fact is we don’t live forever; at least we don’t down here! Most of us would like to live longer, so we go to doctors, fill prescriptions, receive inoculations, endure treatments, avoid accidents, and on and on. But still we die. In fact people are dying who have never died before; everywhere and all around us. So in view of this why is it so difficult to get people to stop and think about eternity? If we all want to live forever in heaven, why not make plans? This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess

This study also hopes people will think about eternity.
