At Issue – Illness
Sometimes we need a wake-up call to remind us what’s important. Hezekiah’s call came in the form of a terminal illness. Seeing that his life was about to end, he was reminded that life is a gift. He realized that life is meant to be lived fully by walking humbly before God, praising him and speaking of his faithfulness to others. God gave Hezekiah 15 more years to live, and Hezekiah chose to make the most of that time. It’s hard enough to remember what’s truly important in life; it’s even harder to choose what’s important in life and to live with that in mind.
