“So they took Joseph's tunic, killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the tunic in the blood. Then they sent the tunic of many colors, and they brought it to their father and said, "We have found this. Do you know whether it is your son's tunic or not?" And he recognized it and said, "It is my son's tunic. A wild beast has devoured him. Without doubt Joseph is torn to pieces." Then Jacob tore his clothes, put sackcloth on his waist, and mourned for his son many days.” Genesis 37:31-34

Much is written about love at first sight. Some of us may remember a certain someone we laid eyes upon for the first time and we were absolutely smitten with them. We remember the most minute of details of what they were wearing and how their hair was styled, what cologne or perfume they had on. But do we give any thought to the possibility that when we look at those we love that it could very well be the last sight of them we will have on this side of eternity?

Jacob believed the last sighting of his son was a torn and bloody tunic that caused him immeasurable grief. What memories are we leaving for our loved ones in our conversations with them? What legacy is left by our daily actions and attitudes? Is there anything you would do differently if you knew for certain that this was the last encounter you would ever have? The last sight is the moment in time that those who are left behind will carry to their graves in remembrance of those who walk among them no longer.

Speak in love—offer peace—share wisdom. It is all over way too soon!

God bless you,

Pastor Kathy
