I heard an ad for a Hospice Care Provider on the radio while commuting to work the other day.
The description of the care given to dying patients by this company sounded wonderful.
I had the fleeting thought that dying must be a pleasure with such care. As the flippant, “Gee, too bad I’m not dying…” flashed through my mind, it hit me that, of course, I am dying, We all are.
Perhaps if we took the same care of one another’s comfort and dignity on a day-to-day basis as the hospice care people do for their clients this would be a much nicer world.
In one respect the family of God is in the hospice care business, helping people live the most beautiful, fulfilling lives they can as they journey toward inevitable death…only we have an extra benefit to offer: eternal life with Jesus.
