Pew Sheet for 18 November 2018
<p ">Take some time and look at an active clock; may be your wrist watch! What do you see? Apart from the beauty and texture which may be relative; a clock keeps ticking. As the clock ticks, time flies from seconds to minutes, from minutes to hours, from hours to days, from days to weeks, from weeks to months from months to years! It keeps ticking: people are born, people grow, people die! It keeps ticking heading somewhere. Yes! To an end when all clocks will stop ticking! And time will end. Would there be an end of time? <p ">As the liturgical and calendar year draws to an end, we are reminded that we are in this world for a moment! There is an end in view. Actually, when anyone of us dies his or her time comes to an end. Evidently none of us has the gift of forever. In any case, we should be more concerned about eternity and living good and acceptable lives than the fear of the end, which is sure to come but at a divinely appointed time. <p ">The question that could be more productive should be: How ready I am if the Lord should come today? Will I be saved or severed?
