100 Things To Do Before You Die

Does this seem ironic to you?  Actually, it’s very unfortunate and I feel sorry for his family.  A simple accident seems like such a random a pointless way to pass away.

Anyway, here’s the money quote from the book:

“This life is a short journey,” the book says. “How can you make sure you fill it with the most fun and that you visit all the coolest places on earth before you pack those bags for the very last time?”

Is that all life is about?  Visiting the most fun and cool places before you die?  Jesus would not have agreed with that worldview.  Instead, this is his quote:

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.”

 His point is not about wealth and savings, but about focus.  Are you focused on 100 cool things to do, a 401K, retiring at 55?  Or are you instead focused on things that matter to God.
