I've been thinking about this ever since Sunday so I thought I'd post and see what all of you thought about this subject.
There is an older lady in my new ward who believes that her mission is finished and she just wants to die. She's been on 2 missions and been a temple worker but she doesn't do that anymore because she believes her mission is finished..she doesn't have anything more to contribute or give. Although she has 3 callings and enjoys those. So I just don't get it.
I guess my question is: What do you think about this? Should one just "give up" once they believe their mission is accomplished? Is there a specific "mission" we all have to fulfill before we die or are we all working towards the common mission or goal of eternal life. If that is the case then shouldn't we want to gain all of the experience we can while we are on the earth?
Let me know what you think.
