Today we attended the funeral of a great-Aunt. She lived to be 99, close to her goal of 100. She was the last one of her generation, and had out-lived several in the following generation. She was a people person with a broad range of interests and a positive attitude.
We’re fascinated by those who live a long life. The current oldest living person in the world is 115. Both of my grandmothers lived into their 90’s. The real question is not how long you live, but do you live well in the time you have.
King David lived about 80 years. I’ve always liked his epitaph: "For when David had served God's purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep….” Acts 13:36
How are you serving God in your generation?
