A man recently went looking for his sow that had gone missing. When he found her he discovered that she had found a hiding place to give birth to six piglets. Ironically, the birthing site she chose was underneath his BBQ smoker!
The pigs’ destiny might serve to remind us that we too have an appointment with death. Therefore, we ought to make the most of our lives and make sure that we are ready to keep that appointment when our time comes.
“Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”—Hebrews 9:27-28.
