Glenn Beck may lose sight

Television and radio commentator Glenn Beck tells a live dinner audience that he may lose his vision, after having been diagnosed with macular dystrophy. From Politics Daily, via the Drudge Report (see the 6:30 mark).

Things like this are always powerful reminders of our mortality. Love him  or hate him, Beck has enjoyed tremendous success recently. Yet, he too will pass away – is passing away. Fading. Soon he literally may not even be able to see the things of this world.

Each and every one of us is in an unstoppable state of decay. Even our greatest successes will not save us. How then, shall we live?

We ought to live for eternity, and in the present, we ought to live with an eternal perspective. May we have the wisdom and strength to do so.
