MAKING YOUR SICK BED SOFTER


From “Tomorrow Can Be Beautiful” and “Just For Today” by Harold J. Sala


On his sickbed prior to death, Charles Spurgeon said, “If you do not wish to be full of regret when you are forced to lie still, work while you can. If you desire to make a sickbed as soft as it can be, do not stuff it with mournful reflections that you wasted time when you were in health and strength.”

Here are four guidelines for living a life without regrets:

1. Plan it now. Some things you can’t do now, but you can prepare to do then when the right time comes.


2. Do it now. Don’t wait until you retire. To start a hobby, take a trip, or remodel the house.


3. Say it now. Tell your spouse and your kids that you love them.


4. Live it now. Make your peace with God now, not in your deathbed.
