Vicki shared with me that as the nurse shared theses stories with her it was a HUGE wake up call, and since then she has had absolutely zero tolerance for pettiness. With tears in her eyes, Vicki said, "Deanna, all I'm consumed with is souls. Time is short, and people are going to hell every day."
I couldn't thank her enough for sharing this with me. Of course I already knew that millions are going to eternity without Jesus, but like Vicki, hearing that nurse's stories are a huge wake up call for me too. We get so desensitized by the cares of life. We start to focus on meaningless things. It's all too easy to forget that people are going to "the flames" daily. What little things have we allowed to distract us rather than share with someone to spare them eternal hell? Really, isn't everything little in comparison?
