A Reminder of Death
A reminder we will not live forever, but one day will
give up our bodies, return to God, and answer to Him.
Our ultimate dependence is on Him, whether we
acknowledge it our not.
A warning to unbelievers to repent
Ezekiel 18:23 (NIV) Do I take any pleasure in the death of
the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I
not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?
