Mr. Hullet also told me “I advise you to keep a Bible by your side and read it wheneveryou have the time. The Bible is the basis of the English language.This, Dr. Lim explained was the advice given him when he was still making headwaywith English literature and grammar.Today 65 years after those words were uttered by his teacher, the pupil follows theirprecept. His Bible, slightly tattered and well worn, is in his hands when he walks aboutin his garden.The Bible has 66 books and one of them is written by a doctor. It is from the bookwritten by Dr. Luke that I have chosen a passage to be read at my funeral. All of you areinvited to my funereal. I don't have the date yet and I hope it doesn't happen soon.
But just as a preview, let me give you glimpse.
In Chapter 16 verse 19-31 of Luke's book,we read of a parable told by Jesus of an unnamed rich man who was enjoying a life of luxury and a poor man named Lazarus who was longing to eat the scraps of food that fellfrom the rich man's table.Lazarus dies and is bought by angels up to heaven.Lazarus has a relationship with God that began while on earth, and this continues on inheaven.The rich man, however, failed to share of his abundance while on earth thusdemonstrating his lack of relationship with God The Rich man dies and is brought to aplace of eternal torment:For the rest of the story you will have to attend my funeral, but one take home message isthis: We need to be accountable for the gifts that we are given from above, and we needan ongoing relationship with the Giver.
