A Sunday Thought

As I sit here contemplating things along the nature of spiritual death (which we define as a separation from God) I suddenly realized something: I'm one of the Nac Mac Feegle, from Terry Pratchett's Tiffany Aching novels.

The Nac Mac Feegle believe that in this life, they're already dead, and this do not fear life because they know that when they pass on to the next life, they will be alive. Now I believe that while we are here on Earth, we are separated from God and, this, are spiritually dead. So there is much to do in this life, but little to fear, because it's in the next life when we truly become alive, if we've performed well enough to enter His presence.
