What's Important Here?

What is important here? I mean, what is the most important thing in our lives? We may say our health, or our family, but the answer is…the sun. When the sun dies, we die. There are no two ways about it or around it. Without the sun to warm us, we could not possibly survive. We would be plunged into darkness and very soon, oblivion. Think about how much for granted we take it. Yet, there is no guarantee that it could not explode and leave us within the cold fingers of death’s clutches. We have scientists who are the most knowledgeable about these things, but they cannot guarantee what will happen. Imagine the panic if all of a sudden the sun did not come up at its appointed time. Very quickly we would perish. When the sun goes down at night, we can only hope that it rises again the next morning. We comfort ourselves that this has been occurring for thousands of years, and it would appear that it would continue to do so, but you never know.
