Ending Well

By Charles Stanley

READ | Luke 12:15-21

Todayís passage is about a rich man who made poor use of his days. Incorrectly assuming that his life would last for many years, he not only left God out of His plans but also allowed materialism to guide him.

The apostle Paul, on the other hand, knew his time was short and yet made the most of His life on earth. For one thing, his priority was to give to others until his final days. His letters from prison illustrate thisódespite knowing he would soon face death, Paul devoted his time and energy to instructing fellow believers and praying for them.

Paul also recognized the value of time spent encouraging Christians to do everything as if for the Lord (Col. 3:23). This is important even when oneís task seems unrelated to the church. Our Fatherís work isnít just for missionaries and pastors; He calls all His children to different fields and assignments.

The apostle also knew that the Christian life encompasses struggles. And he was realistic about acknowledging his own imperfections (Rom. 7:5-25). This meant that to make the best use of his time, he needed to persevere, keep faith in Godís promises, and rely on divine power for victory. And indeed, at the end of his life, Paul was able to say, ďI have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faithĒ (2 Tim. 4:7).

Life is a gift. Every one of us has a limited number of days on this earth. How will you utilize your time so you can look back and, with Paul, confidently say that you ended well?
