What Would You Do?

 [[Picture Below]]

A lot of people have it in their heads that the end of the world is on the 21st of this month. I highly doubt this is going to be the case- yet what if it is? Like it says in Mark 13:32, referring to the Lord's return, "But about that day or hour no one knows". 

With all this end of the world talk, it makes for an interesting subject of conversation, if nothing else. What would you do, if you knew for a fact that you would die in two weeks? The general consensus I hear seems to be "go on an adventure! See the world!", followed by stuff having to do with personal finance- things ranging from "sell all my assets so that the gov won't tax them", to "give everything to my relatives or friends before I kick the bucket" or even "Give all my money away to random people".

It seems to me that hearing what people would do with the last few days of their lives can be a good indicator of what kind of person they are and what matters the most to them. Considering the above statements, most people's deepest desires and main concerns have to do with travel and money. What I want to ask is, what about God? Where does He fit into all that? If you only had a few days left to live, shouldn't you be concerned about things to come, rather than things that currently surround you? When you face God, will you be proud to tell Him all about how you spent the time He gave you on earth, or will you cringe as you account for every moment spent pursuing things that have no eternal value?

"The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray."

Advice: Lightning shots are tough to capture. For best results, put your camera on the settings I have listed, or use a fireworks setting on your camera. Make sure you have either a windowsill or a tripod to keep your camera steady. After that, it's all about timing! Some people will just keep firing off shots until they capture something, but if you've got a good trigger finger & a fast camera, hit the button the second your eye catches any sight of light in the sky- it saves you from deleting 100's of blank shots :)
