The frailty of life

We can run, we can hide, and at time we may think we have escape it's grip. But when you slow down. You hear the familiar sound. Tick... tick... tick... tick..

It's has always been faithful to The One who sent it. And it is certain to accomplish it's purpose. For better or for worst..

It is not the amount of exercise we put in though it may keep us healthy for a while , nor the food we eat though it is vital. It is the design of it. God has determine it to be this way.

Genesis 6:3 ESV
Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.”

Psalm 90:10 ESV
The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.

We spend our prime life building ourselves up. So that we could live a few more years longer in our old age. Where living longer only prolong the weariness of this futile life. Is there any meaning to that? What are we doing with our prime?

A quote from Paul Washer.
 "Amen." Okay, let's talk about your television. You watch things. You expect God to move? You love those. You love their jokes, their off-color jokes, their humor. You find yourself laughing in wickedness. And then you want God to move in your family and move in your life. Do you love the world? My dear friends, yesterday I was nine years old; today I am 43. Tomorrow I will be 90. Life is a vapor. It is fleeting. Everything will die. All will pass away. We are to love the things of God, the things that are eternal, and one of the signs of a Christian is that they are not entrapped or enslaved to the things of this present evil age, but they are set free to see Christ in His glory and follow Him and follow hard after him. ~Paul Washer
