Are You Prepared?

It would be wise for me to always remember that I must die and that I ought always to be ready.  I should be able to go to bed at night and say: This night I may die; and if I die I am going to heaven…Would I do this or that if I knew I were to die this minute?...Live so death will never find me unprepared. I must always be ready.
