Time is short. Life goes by in the blink of an eye. On that last day, it will not matter how much money you had on Earth. It will not matter how long you lived. It will not matter how many countries you visited or how famous you became. The only thing that will matter will be whether you will stand righteous before God or if you will fall with the wicked. The book of Malachi ends by directing our eyes to the great and awesome day of the Lord where history will end with God's final judgment on Earth.
