This morning I attended a funeral for one of my patients and there were several things that the preacher said that really stuck with me. None of these are exact quotes, but they are pretty close.
1) Sheep are stupid, they will die without a shepherd. They can not find shelter, green grass, or even water without help, just like the people of the flock in a church.
2) Everyone is going to check out (die) and you will check in somewhere, and you must have a reservation to get into heaven. Your name must be written in the book of life. It is important for you to check up before you check out. No one is guaranteed another day.
3) Don't drop the baton, every family has a legacy and it is up to the future generations not to drop the baton. Not just your biological family, but church family as well.
He said a lot more, the funeral was 75 minutes long, but those were some of the things that I could remember. I just wanted to share these with you guys, have a great day....
