Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..

On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples approached Jesus and said,
"Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover?" He said, "Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, 'The teacher says, My appointed time draws near; in your house I shall celebrate the Passover with my disciples'." The disciples then did as Jesus had ordered, and prepared the Passover. (Mt 26:17-19)

In Matthew's story it is now Thursday, and the Passover will begin at sunset. Jesus says, "My appointed time draws near." Indeed it does. This young and healthy man
from Nazareth is less than 24 hours away from death.

As each life is different, each death is different, and seldom follows the script we would have written. There are many causes and kinds of death - accidents, crimes, suicides, lingering illnesses. There is the sad death of a little child or a young parent. There is the bittersweet death of a very old or sick person who has been waiting to die.

The death of Jesus was a sudden death. On Thursday he was a healthy young man. On Friday afternoon he was dead - executed as a criminal.

How shall I die?
How will my family and friends react?
How will it be to meet the Lord?
