What a powerful commercial! Technology can bring (and has brought) many benefits to mankind, but one glance, one text, one upload while driving can be disastrous.
Without minimizing the horror of the tragedy this commercial depicts, allow me to make a spiritual application. What is worse than losing one’s physical life because of a distraction? Losing one’s spiritual life by being distracted by the things of this world.
I believe many think that either death ends one’s personal existence or that there will be many opportunities to “get right” with God after death. But what if death ends all opportunities to be saved? What if one’s relationship or lack of relationship to Jesus is finalized at death? What then?
