How would you live if you knew you were dying? That’s the gist of the hit Tim McGraw song, “Live Like You Were Dying.” In a certain sense, we’re all living as if we were dying. After all, each day expended brings us one step closer to physical death. And in a spiritual sense, every Christian aims to die to self, a reckoning that occurs day after day (Ephesians 4:20-24). That means rejecting things like malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy and slander (1 Peter 2:1), living for the will of God rather than for human passions that bear no eternal fruit (1 Peter 4:1-2; Luke 9:23-24). Do you live as if you were dying?
