Hollywood icon Michael Douglas was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer last month. The Oscar-winning actor is undergoing a grueling round of treatments which include chemotherapy and radiation. Douglas has a positive attitude and says that he likes his odds. But in an interview with USA Today, he smiles and says, “I haven’t found God yet.”
That’s a shame. Everybody needs to find God, especially those who are facing a potentially life-threatening illness. Everyone is hoping that Michael Douglas beats cancer and goes on to live a long and happy life. But the last time anyone checked, the mortality rate for humans was still running at about 100%. Like everyone else, Douglas has an appointment with God. Heb.9:27 says, “…man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.” You can write that down in your appointment book.
