One Day

Couples of the BibleEarly one morning, the Lord spoke to Ezekiel. The message could not have been more terrifying. “Son of man, with one blow I am about to take away from you the delight of your eyes” (Ezekiel 24:16).

Can you imagine being told you only had one more day with your spouse?

What would you do on the last day with the one you love? How would you treat your spouse? Would you make certain there were no unsettled issues? What tender words would you use to express your love? Would you be kinder and more thankful than usual? Would you look for ways to serve more eagerly? And how do you think your spouse would respond to all this special treatment?

About 350 years before Ezekiel received this stunning message from God, King Solomon put life and death in perspective: “It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death is the destiny of everyone; the living should take this to heart” (Ecclesiastes 7:2). It is wise to live with the end of your life in mind and treasure each other while you can.

Your spouse is a treasure to be cherished. Treat each day with each other as if it were your last.

From God’s Word . . .

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (PSALM 90:12)
