Be Upfront with Death

 

10-17-2011 12;23;08PM2Have you ever consider death as an enemy? It certainly is not a welcome friend. Death respects no age, no gender, and no race. Death presents itself whenever it feels like it with no notice and with no consideration; death sounds like an enemy.

Death, unfortunately, is a part of life. Sounds contradictory, but the end of physical life comes to each of us someday. So, it is important to be up front with death.

We can’t hide from it or out live it…we can deny that it exists, but that doesn’t change anything. The best approach to the inevitable is head on…face-to-face.

It is said that living doesn’t begin until you conquer your fear of death. How can you conquer the fear of death if you don’t know anything about it?

Once you gain some knowledge of death from the right source, the fear of death begins to subside. The less fear, the more you are able to breathe in life.

Find a reliable source for your information such as hospice personnel (chaplain, nurse, social worker) and simple ask the questions you have always wondered about, but were reluctant (afraid) to ask. Free yourself …be upfront with death.

The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
(1 Corinthians 15:26 NIV)

  1. My mother and father-in-law had their ducks in a row about everything … except death. They wouldn’t even discuss the subject, although dad was extremely ill for years.
