Ed Lorenz, 69, bowled a perfect game in Portage, Michigan in 2005. Shortly after he rolled the 300 game, Lorenz clutched his chest and fell over. Efforts to revive him failed.
One of Ed’s friends said, “If he could have written a way to go out, this would be it.”
I suppose that the perfect way for a bowler to close out his life would be to bowl a perfect game. You do the best that you can possibly do right up to the very end.
That is something that all of us should strive to achieve—to fulfill our purpose in life to the very best of the ability that God has given us, right up to the very end.
“Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his ancestors…”—Acts 13:36.
