24 Nov Luke 16:27-29
27 And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, that you send him to my father’s house— 28 for I have five brothers—in order that he may warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’ 29 But Abraham *said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’
The rich man understood where he was and that he was not going anywhere. His first thought was about his brothers and making sure they knew about Christ, so they would not end up in the same place. For this rich man reality crept in but it was too late, even to warn those he loved. We must understand we do not have forever. Our life on earth is like a mist, here and then gone that quickly. Therefore, if you are not living as you should, make the decision to change today. We must also understand the need to tell our loved ones about Christ while we have time. It is often tough to tell our family members but it is the most unselfish thing we could do.
