Acts 13:36 (NIV), "...when David had served God's purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep..."
I don't want to cheapen everything that's packed away in this verse, but this is a good way to live and die...
Wouldn't you LOVE God to say something like this about you?
"He / She 'served MY purpose' in THEIR generation and then...LIGHTS OUT... They're home. Good job. Well done."
