Read a headline today about Steve Jobs.
"Mortality drove him."
Didn't read the rest....but the thought continued.
Mid sixties seems to bring a lot more focus to things like this.
Lots more countings and calculatings...and watching life cycles.
Lots less expansive in the musings...
A lot more ticking sounds in the background.
What should drive us is not mortality, but immortality.
Even those without saving faith should give it central thought.
This life just isn't all that there is ... there is infinitely (word chosen carefully) more.
Heaven. Jesus. The Presence of the Father. Reunions. Really knowing. Justice.
No calendars. No sunsets. No anniversaries or birthdays.
"Deep honor and bright glory to the King of All Time -
One God, Immortal, Invisible, ever and always.
Oh, yes!" The Message - I Timothy 1:17
