Jesus knew that the time had come for Him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved His own who were in the world, He now showed them the full extent of His love. John 13:1 NIV
If you knew that you only had a short time to live, wouldn’t you show your family and friends the full extent of your love? Wouldn’t you say the words that you’ve needed to say for years? Wouldn’t you forgive that friend or family member who hurt you? Wouldn’t you share stories and advice with your children and relatives?
Why wait until you only have a short time to live? Why not do those things now?
