The Last Sky Dive

One of my breakfast-table mates is 90-year-old Tom C. I’ve shared his story from his days as a member of 101st Airborne with over 500 successful jumps.  He, James B, Don C and I were talking about final stuff and we were caused to pause when Tom C. was asked, “Tom, would you have jumped without assurance that there was a chute on your line?”.  He looked up and said, “Say What?, Of course not”.  Of course not.  But, isn’t that what many lost folks are doing when their final jump from life comes?  Nothing they have amassed up until that moment is worth a hill-of-beans.  There is nothing to break their free fall into Hell. Breakfast didn’t taste as good after that. It’s hard to swallow past the lump in a throat when coming face-to-face with the future for lost folks. That time will come for sure and that promise of what eternity holds will not mean “happy landing”.  Join Tom C, James B, Don C and I as we pray for those whose last sky dive is coming.  GOD, place a burden on my heart for all who are outside YOUR provision. Make our lives a witness of just who YOU are and of the Hope within us.  That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.   AMEN
