Sunrises come so routinely, so . . . daily.
Would we take a sunrise lightly if we knew it was our last?
“The sun had risen over the earth . . . . Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven . . .” (Genesis 19:23-24, emphasis added).
Did they suspect it was their last sunrise?
“. . . they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling . . . it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed” (Luke 17:28-30).
Some sunrise will be our last—either the day Jesus comes or the day we die.
So shouldn’t we live this day as if it were our last?
It could well be.
