have friends who are quite aged, near death, and we were seeking to divine why God would design us to
break down and eventually fail physically.
I know I've mentioned it here before, but it's my blog, so...
Humbling. God opposes the proud and gives Grace to the humble. The young man or woman who takes pride in their self sufficiency, their youthful strength, becomes older, eventually more brittle and weak,
humbled by the deterioration of their bodies.
So they may turn to God in their old age, always by His design and by His drawing them to Himself.
Christians who age don't get a free pass-our bodies are as encased in entropy as anyone else s. We become
frail and eventually die, passing to Heaven. The difference is my metaphorical bags have been packed for the journey for over 30 years, and I look forward to dying and making it to the gate of Pearl. I would prefer to
have my ticket punched before I get too old and frail, but that's my pride talking. I don't want to become weak. But God sets the number of our days, so until THAT day...may God Bless you.
