More Meditation on Death
If only we could point to one day in our life that was really well spent. In the morning think that you may not live till night; and when night comes, do not be sure that you will live till tomorrow. One thing is certain: death is the end of all! Our life passes suddenly like a shadow. Gain merit for eternity now while there is time and concern yourself only with your eternal salvation. Live on earth as a pilgrim and a stranger, unconcerned with the world's business. Let your heart remain free and lifted up to God, for you have not here a lasting city.
