A cashier shared with me she had lost her husband last year. She told me when he was about to breathe his last breath, he asked her to put his Bible under his feet. In her grief, she didn’t immediately comprehend the meaning of the request. The man’s brother cleared it up for her. He explained his brother wanted to die standing firm on the Word of God.
I thought it was a beautiful picture and a sign of a life well lived. To never waver or compromise the truth of God’s Word is the calling of every follower of Jesus. Not only should we stand firm in times of trouble, but we must stand firm when things are easy and going our way. Never forget or take for granted the reason for our hope.
