Ralph Barton, one of the top cartoonists of the 1900’s, left this note pinned to his pillow before taking his own life: “I have had few difficulties, many friends, great successes; I have gone from wife to wife, from house to house, visited great countries of the world, but I am fed up with inventing devices to fill up twenty-four hours of the day.”

He had gone through four wives and totally rejected Christianity. He crawled under a blanket and put a bullet through his head.

He didn’t miss with his shot, but he did miss the purpose of life. God put us here and He shouldn’t be rejected.

Psalm 57:2 

I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills His purpose for me.

Matthew 6:33 

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Don’t miss the point of this before something scary enters your head.

Think about it.
