Living with Death

Job 30:16-23

The Pointer to the Point of No Return

Whether we are tempted to catalogue all our petty ailments or to be in denial about serious illness, we need to face up to the challenge of death in the midst of life. The early onset of evidence that life is extremely time-limited ought to be a spur to us not only to show wisdom by discerning our latter end in the midst of life [Deuteronomy 32:29] but to live life thankfully and joyfully in the midst of death [1 Corinthians 1:10.]
