There are signs all around you of the inevitability of death. There are people young, old, sick and healthy all buckling under one calamity or the other, not only physically but often socially, spiritually and mentally. In the light of this reality it is up to us to make the most of now – we only have one chance to make a first impression. Life then is about being alert to positive actions in whatever is the given situation even if circumstances wish to pull in another direction.
So watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times! (Ephesians 5:15, 16)
