Friday of Week 34 Year 2

If God were to call you today to give an account of your life, where would you stand? Would you find yourself in the book of life? Would you be able to be with Him for eternity? What sort of life have you been living up to this point of time?

In today's reading, John had a vision where he "saw the dead, both great and small, standing in front of his throne, while the book of life was opened, and other books opened which were the record of what they had done in their lives, by which the dead were judged." John also saw in his vision a burning lake which is the second death "and anybody whose name could not be found written in the book of life was thrown into the burning lake."

While we should not become too paranoid and fearful with the contents of this reading, we should also not neglect our relationship with God. In life, we may have focused much on worldly matters, at the expense of growing closer in relationship with God. Perhaps we should consider what really is important to us, and change our lives for the betterment of our eternal future.
