Death Cares Not For Your Person

Jesus began to tell a story of two men. One was rich and the other was a beggar. Yet, something happened to both of them, even as it shall happen to us, “So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried” (Luke 16:22).
Death did not ignore the beggar as the rich man had. Death did not merely camp at the gate of the rich man as the beggar had, but marched right into the home of the rich man and took him even as it took the beggar.
It does not matter what we do in life or who we are, death takes us all. Many people depended upon the rich man and probably no one depended upon the beggar, yet, death removed both of them from earth.
None of us should think that we can escape death. No, the only thing we can do is prepare ourselves for it. Are you prepared to die?
