Live as if you are dying...

I just got back from the Franciscan Monastery. Every year on the eve of the Feast of St. Francis. Franciscans from all over gather to commemorate the death of our Holy Father Francis.

In the homily the friar spoke about living each day as if you were dying. Granted at first it sound morbid but as I listened to him I began to think. What would I be doing differently now if I knew I was dying soon. What would I do differently if I knew that I would be meeting God in the near future? As my mind wandered lots of things came to me. I still have so much work to do.

One thing is certain you never really know how much time you have, you never really know when your time on earth will be up. You never really know when you will be called home to judgement. I guess it makes sense to live like you are dying. What would you work on ?
