Our lives will not go on forever. Eternity lies ahead for each of us.
Moses prayed for wisdom so that he might live the remaining days of his life with wisdom and skill. The Scriptures call us to live intentionally in the same way with a view towards the end of our lives.
Thinking seriously about the legacy of our lives is essential for living well (2 Timothy 4.6,7).
William Hazlitt wrote that no young man believes that he will ever die, and the truth of the matter, I think, is that in some measure that is true of all men. Intellectually we all know that we will die, but we do not really know it in the sense that the knowledge becomes part of us. We do not really know it in the sense of living as though it were true. On the contrary, we tend to live as though our lives would go on forever. We spend our lives like drunken sailors (Frederick Buechner, The Hungering Dark).
What do you think of Buechner’s statement?
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them (Psalm 139.16).
What do you think God meant for us to know and experience when He “ordained” our aging years when it comes to the final season of life, our dying?
