I’ll See You in a Few Minutes

I Peter 3:8 (NASB) says, “But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.”

As I have watched friends deal with the death of a loved one – even as I look at the mortality of those close to me, I have thought of the pain of goodbye.  For those who know the Lord it is not goodbye, but till we meet again.

I have also thought of how short life is – even if we live 100 years.  My life will be done in such a short time no matter how many days God has planned for me.  The verse above tells us that in God’s eyes a thousand years is like one day.  So I figure my life will last only a few minutes.

In light of this I want my words to a dying loved one to be, “Till we meet again – I’ll see you in a few minutes.”
