Which way did he go?

There’s an epitaph on a headstone outside an English parish church that says: ‘Behold all you who pass by, for as you are so once was I; and as I am so you will be; prepare yourself to follow me.’ To which someone added these word: ‘To follow you I’ll not consent, until I know which way you went.’
Conversations about our destiny beyond this life are not very common in our materialistic world. Our forefathers were much more aware of the reality of life as a journey that does not end with physical death, but goes on into eternity. Thoughts about preparing for that journey were also more common than today. But, fashionable or not, that great Biblical truth remains: ‘Keep watch, because you don’t know the day nor the hour when your call will come’.
