Is that all there is?

In the movie “City Slickers.” Comedian Billy Crystal plays the part of a bored baby boomer who sells radio-advertising time. One day he visits his son’s school to talk about his work along with other fathers, he suddenly lets loose a deadpan monologue to the bewildered youngsters in the class: Value this time in your life, kids, because this is the time in your life when you still have your choices. It goes by fast. When you are a teenager, you think you can do anything, and you do. Your twenties are a blur. Thirties, you raise your family, you make a little money, and you think to yourself, “What happened to my twenties?” Forties, you grow a little potbelly, you grow another chin. The music starts to get too loud; one of your old girlfriends from high school becomes a grandmother. Fifties, you have a minor surgery — you will call it a procedure, but it is a surgery. Sixties, you will have a major surgery, the music is still loud, but it does not matter because you cannot hear it anyway. Seventies, you, and the wife retire to Fort Lauderdale. You start eating dinner at 2:00 in the afternoon, you have lunch around 10:00, breakfast the night before, spend most of your time wandering around malls looking for the ultimate soft yogurt and muttering, “How come the kids don’t call”? The eighties, you will have a major stroke, and you end up babbling with some Jamaican nurse whom your wife cannot stand, but whom you call mama. Crystal then looks at the kids and asks, “Any questions?”

Contrast what Jesus Christ tells us. Life has it’s pitfalls and Satan, the thief is trying to destroy and kill us, He tells us “That’s not all there is “…I came so they (that’s you) can have real and eternal life, better life than they ever dreamed of.” John 10:28 –Message
