Of Death and Living

Death. When was the last time one thought about it? Not to say that we should be worried or obsessed with it, but we need to be aware that we all are mortal in body. Thank God so much that He proved that there is a hope that lies beyond the grave.

And the shameful senescence that must inevitably come for all who survive youth. We hit 40, 50, 60, 70, 80... and if God allows... all the way up to 120. And oh God, we are so fragile. We are degenerating before our own eyes. And eventually we cannot hold onto our speed, then our stamina, then our urine, then our mind, then our breath and eventually our spirit.

But thank God, on the bright side, if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. And that's joy enough for us to know... and peace enough for tomorrow.
