On Tuesday night, one of those amazing guys tragically & unexpectedly passed away. Although I only met Luke briefly, & Matt just spent a short weekend hanging out with him, we both appreciated his vibrant, life-loving spirit. I know that he is missed dearly by his friends & family, but that he's also at home now with the Lord. If you're reading this, please say a prayer for Luke's family. That they would be comforted & loved in their loss.
Matt was really shaken up by the news, & it reminded me of the all-too-early-loss of our friend, Matt Wilhelm. Both Matt & Luke were young, energetic, God-fearing men whose tragic deaths reminded us that life is short & that we shouldn't waste our life with things that don't matter.
After you pray for Luke, his family, & all who are suffering & dealing with loss....hug someone you love tonight.
