First, Harold Camping is a total Kook, a nut, a complete idiot (at least when it comes to interpreting the Bible). Okay? We have established that, right? Good.

But on the other hand, people die in freak accidents, learn they have inoperable cancer, fall in the shower, or otherwise meet an untimely demise every day. So… try this…

Assume… just for a moment, that this is the last day you will ever spend on the planet. Just for a moment. How would you live differently? Would you kiss your spouse? Speak kindly to your child? Forgive someone who’s wronged you? Would you work harder and more honestly at your job? Would you be “nicer”?

What if this really is the last day of your life? Live like it. In a good way, not in self-fullfillment, but in love and grace and mercy. Live like the only thing people will talk about if you die today is how you lived… today…

For me, it boils down to this. Love God. Love the people around me.

Simple…

Even if Harold Camping is a certified looney.
