Do You Know Where You Are Going?

By Don Loftis | 01.31.18

Dwight Morrow was a financier who later in life became a politician and a diplomat.  One day he was waiting for a train in Grand Central Station, when an acquaintance noticed that he was repeatedly searching for something in his pocket.  Since he was famous for his absentmindedness, his friend asked if he had lost his ticket.  Morrow replied, “It’s worse than that.  I have forgotten where I am going.”

 

It seems to me that many folks have forgotten where they are going.  They have forgotten their most important appointment.  While our journeys may be different in many ways, they will all end before the presence of the Lord.  The apostle Paul wrote, “For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God. … So then each one of us will give an account of himself before God” (Romans 14:10-12).

 

We spend a lot of time planning for an education, a vacation, or retirement.  We schedule doctor appointments and buy a variety of insurances.  Yet, most folks are utterly unprepared for meeting the Lord.  Jesus told of a man who had great confidence in the wealth he had accumulated.  He thought it would take care of all his needs.  Yet Jesus said, “You fool! This very night your soul is required of you: and now who will own what you have prepared?  So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

 

Let’s be sure we know where we are going, and that we are prepared for our arrival.
