You must have read or heard about the wish lists of things to do before you die.
Usually they are entitled 20 things to do before you die. The number may well vary but the intention is always the same.
The list sets out such things like undertaking a parachute jump, or swimming with dolphins – always a popular one this, I can’t understand why. Or seeing a blue whale, or bungee jumping, and similar adventures ranging from the normally acceptable to the outright dangerous.
I’ve never seen on the list of things to do before you die the wish:
To prepare to die.
What? What do you mean to prepare to die?
“I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me.” John 14:6.
