Life can be sad

I spent some time with an old Jewish man today. He has been very successful in so many ways and a disaster in so many others. He is wealthier than most, but has strained relationships with many family members. He has worked hard at amassing wealth, but as we sat talking over a cup of coffee, he said in an unguarded moment “I have done nothing worthwhile with my life…”

We prayed and he and his wife where quite moved that a young pastor should come and pray with them…

I hope that when I get to the end of it all I can look back on my family, my friends and all those whom I have served and be able to say “I did OK, by God’s grace, I did OK…”
