Legendary evangelist Billy Graham, who counseled presidents, died Wednesday at the age of 99 years old. President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence quickly issued statements:

But before his death, Graham posted on Facebook one last time. He said:

"If you went for a walk in the woods, but then decided to wander off the path, and found yourself surrounded by a thicket of thorns and poison ivy, who would you blame? Would you blame the person who built the path? No, of course not. Instead you'd blame yourself if you were honest, because you alone were responsible for wandering from the path.

In a far deeper way, this is what happens when we decide to leave God out of our lives. For a time, it may seem like wandering away from Him doesn't make any difference; it may even seem easier and freer. But eventually it catches up with us—just as wandering off that path and into the thicket caught up with you." —Billy Graham
