The Facts Of Life (And Death)
A 16-year old boy dies in a car wreck. The whole community is dazed. The kids at school along with the teachers and staff, weep and go through the motions for days. Darkness and confusion reign. Why? Because life's not supposed to end like that - so suddenly and so young. What happened to the promise of a future, the promise of life and years full of friends and college and career and marriage and all the stuff of life? Whether you're old or you're young, we need to stop and consider what God says about life and death. In James 4.13-17, God lays out the "facts of life" for all of us to consider.
