Reading: John 10: 28
I heard a story once about a lady who was diagnosed with a terminal illness. She went to her pastor to plan out her funeral service. She had one through the service and made all the arrangements and was getting ready to leave when she told the pastor that she had just two more requests. One, that she buried with her Bible in her left hand. Two, that she be buried with a fork in her right hand.
The minister asked why she wanted to have a fork in her hand. She told him that she had been to plenty of church suppers and when they cleared the supper dishes, they often told her to save her fork. She knew that when they told her to save her fork there was something better on the way-- dessert. She said that the fork in her hand in her casket would be a reminder that she was going to a life that is even better than the one she lived on earth.
He who believes in Christ will never die. We will all go to somewhere better. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
