If You Were to Die Tonight, What Would You Rather Do The Whole Day?

ON LIFE. The other day, I read how a number of old, dying people were asked what one thing they regretted about in life now that they were dying.

Accordingly, majority of the answers were about not trying to do a lot of good things while they had the youth and energy.

Then the article encouraged readers to do all the fun they could now while they were strong---like traveling, boating, trekking, scuba diving, bungee jumping, kayaking, and other crazy stuff.

Probably.

But what if you had less than 24 hours left?

I for one would ask my family and close friends to gather by my bed and talk about some of the good old days we had and, most importantly, about Jesus. To me, that beats all the fun and adventure you could think of in this world.

Well, it'd be lots better if you could do the same while in vacation in Palawan, Batanes, Switzerland, New Zealand or the Bahamas if you had that much money. Much better if you could treat them for free as well.

My point is, whatever it is you'd want to do and could do if you had only less than 24 hours left, do it now while you have a full life ahead of you and the energy to do it, too. Don't they say how we ought to live our lives like every day were our last?

Treat them to vacation trips each day? Well, why not, if you're someone like Donald Trump, Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg who earn millions or billions of residual income each day.

And probably, I'd include buying and reading as many books each day as possible, watching good movies in our home family theater, trying out different guns at the shooting range.

In the meantime that I'm not yet rich (and definitely I'm not dying, by God's grace), what I really love doing is spend time with God, my family and some friends, especially casually talking about Jesus with them.

But, how about if you have only 3 minutes? Well, to me, the best way to spend your last 3 minutes on earth is these 3 things:

1. Sincerely repent of your sins.
2. Receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
3. Surrender your life to him 100 percent.
