We do not know when we will die. David said, “Yea, though I walk through the valley …,” but he didn’t know from one moment to the next what was going to happen.
You see, God doesn’t have to take your life; all He has to do is stop giving it. It is “of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed.” (Lamentations 3:22) Life is a gift from God. Our lives are like a vapor on a frosty morning, here for a moment and then gone. “If the Lord will, we shall live and do this or that.” (James 4:15) And step number one in learning to smile at death is to look death straight in the face. It’s there! But we don’t have to fear it. We know it’s coming, and we must prepare to face it with a smile.
