I love what Jerry Seinfeld said, “According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking and number two is death. This means to the average person if you have to go to a funeral you are better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” Whether or not you fear death you do have to cope with it. Basically, you will cope with it in one of two ways: with hope or without hope. Two things have to be true, either this life is all there is or there is more to life than this life. This is one reason why I wish everyone would consider Christianity, because I don’t know of any faith, or any religion, or any spiritual concept that gives more hope for death than Christianity. If just this one statement that David wrote is true, to rephrase Winston Churchill, “Death is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. It is just the end of the beginning.” The last walk we will ever take is the walk with death. We don’t know when, where or how we are going to take that walk, but we will. Let’s do what David did and let’s look ahead to what that walk could be like and where that walk could lead. If you know the God of life and death, it will be the best walk you will ever take.
