I was at a funeral last week and the son of the deceased man was giving his eulogy.  He told us how accomplished his father was, he told us a few jokes, he told us a few stories that brought people to tears, and overall he did a good job.  But there was one line that he said that really disturbed me…
“I don’t know where my father is right now because he was not a spiritual man, but if he is somewhere listening to John Lennon then I’m happy for him…”
My friends you and your family and your friends can know for certain where you will be after you leave this earth.  We all are going somewhere and Jesus came to this earth to show us the way to Heaven so if we give our lives over to Jesus He will make sure we end up in heaven when our eyes close for the final time on earth.
Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.  – Matthew 18:14
Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in, aim at earth and you will miss both. – C.S. Lewis
