Jack’s Winning Words 1/22/16
“When contemplating your final move from the world, remember it’s all about location, location, location!” (Linda Poindexter) There’s a real estate saying that “price is nice, but location is better.” That saying can be applied to the end of life, too. We can have a great bank account when we die, but how does that compare with where we’ll spend eternity? I’ve seen a sculpture of Dante’s Inferno, and I’ve read God’s promises. I’m choosing God. ;-) Jack
FROM ST PAUL IN MESA: good choice! reminds me of a joke. a man picks up and old Indian woman one day while driving down the highway. she notices a bottle of wine on the front seat. the driver tells the woman "I got it for my wife". the old Indian woman says very dryly, "good trade"! ====JACK: I wonder what Margaret would get for you?
FROM HONEST JOHN: I've read Dante's Inferno...not a nice place or ending for some of those folks. God, I believe, is a little more loving than Dante....nevertheless, God is not to be mocked or taken for granted.====JACK: I haven't heard any hell-fire and brimstone sermons lately. I can't remember ever preaching on that subject. How about you?
FROM MY LAWYER: Procrastinate as long as you can! Don't be in a hurry!====JACK: A lot of people don't realize it, but there's a time clock for life on earth, too. But there's a problem...the numbers are hidden. How about if basketball and football games were played with a hidden clock? Wouldn't that ne interesting?
FROM TARMART REV: Me too!! The best is yet to come!!====JACK: ...and we're buying it, sight unseen! Wow! That is faith.
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: Dante Inferno was quite daunting. Thankfully, we don't have to worry about our endings. However, God is not to be mocked. He is a Mighty Fortress!====JACK: Have you ever had to stand before a judge? It's quite a daunting experience. Imagine what it must be like to stand before God as judge. Maybe that describes fear.
