Last Words

If only I had someone to hear my case! Here is my signature; let the Almighty answer me. Let my Opponent compose His indictment. – Job 31:35

Last words are important, aren’t they? I think so … for two reasons: because of what you say and to whom you say it.

What do you think will be your last words? The person who faces execution is usually asked if they have any. Since the time and moment of death is fixed, such a person would have an opportunity to consider what they wanted to say; however, most of us will never know which words will be our last. On the other hand, what do we know?

Whatever our last words will be, we know Who will be listening. God, Himself. Oh, if we could just realize this truth at every moment! In every instance! God listens. He hears … and He responds with wisdom, grace, love, and justice. Lord, may all my words (including my last words) be pleasing to You.
