If you wonder why people in nursing homes love children so much, spend a few hours with someone who is dying. After that, a toddler throwing a fit is sweeter music than von Karajan.
If you want free rein to quote God's promises in the Bible, minister to the dying. People want to hear hope at this time--and not just the one facing streets of gold or sulfur.
If you want to know the difference between vague promises of being "in a better place" and the real impact of the Word, attend to the dying and quote those promises.
If you want to know what it's like to serve another with no chance of earthly reward, attend to the dying.
