Here is a little poem I came across while reading today. We must seek to be useful in our time here on earth, and yet be willing to die for Christ if we must.

“Lord, it belongs not to my care
Whether I die or live;
To love and serve Thee is my share,
And this Thy grace must give

If life be long, I will be glad
That I may long obey;
If short-then why should one be sad
To soar to endless day?”
