Moving Day


Self Reflection

In a moment of deep self reflection, he accepted that the time had come. He had dreaded the fact that it would eventually come to this reality. The fear of the necessary change had lingered long in his mind and heart as he saw his options slowly collapse around him. It reminded him of when he was a kid and had stood dominos on their ends in a long winding road, only to accidentally touch one and start a chain reaction that would leave a mess. He had to move. “What about all my stuff”, he thought. He had spent a lifetime accustomed to accumulating that which he wanted, and the thought of having to let it go was almost more than he could bear. He was all but obsessively attached to his stuff. But, he had to move. He knew that by having to move into the elder care facility that the end of the road was coming for him, that most likely that would be his last address.

We All Have a Moving Day

We all will have a moving day in time. The big question is when. It could be as soon as you have read this, or it could be years down the road. That’s God’s decision. The larger question, however, is not the when. Nor is it about your stuff. The most important question is where you will move to when you leave Mother Earth. On that moving day there will only be two destinations—Heaven or hell.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”

Matthew 7:21-23 ESV

We each have a lifetime, however long that is, to make the choices that will lead us to either place. At the instant we take our last breath and our heart has its last beat, we can make no more choices. It will be too late. Our best bet is to choose wisely each living moment because of that great unknown—when that instant will happen.

Last Thought

A last thought: it is a certainty that no one can bring a U-Haul, a moving van, or a trailer packed with their stuff to Heaven with them. Does your love of stuff stand in the way of the choices you could otherwise make regarding your place in Heaven?
