To Dust We Shall Return

Though we don’t care to consider this, all of us are going to die. Strange as it seems, death is a part of life for from dust we came and to dust we shall return.

Death can come without warning as some die suddenly from a heart attack or an accident; others acquire an illness with no hope of cure. However the circumstance, the end of this life eventually comes, at any time, at any age.

In either case, to be prepared or as it’s said, “To have your house in order” is a wise choice. The older you are, the easier this is to do. No one should focus on death, but everyone should accept the reality; for we are dust and to dust we shall return.

  1. A gal in our homeschool group died of cancer a few years before Jason died. I remember thinking at the time that each of us has to die sometime and somehow, and thinking that must have been her way to go. It’s more difficult to think “that must have been my child’s way to die.” I still am aware of that fact everyone has to die somehow, but it’s more difficult to come to grips with when it’s your own child, I think, and I still find myself questioning “Why? Why Jason. He had so much to live for.” I certainly agree that keeping one’s house in order – especially spiritually – is of the utmost importance. I didn’t know Jason was going to die – and neither did he – but I can still picture him at church the Sunday before he died with his hands raised and his eyes closed as he sang a song to the Most High. I’m sure beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s doing the same thing now.

  2. Not only your material house in order, but your spiritual house as well. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. …and it certainly makes things easier for those around you, if the house is in order ahead of time….

  4. All the more reason to live our lives in the present, and at the same time, keeping our focus on heavenly things. Our souls will live forever, and our bodies will live just for a short time.

    Thanks for the reminder! Blessings to you and your ministry!
