How could one word that only has only one definition have so many different experiences wrap is sided it? People, unlike gallons of milk, don't come with an expiration date. However, the reality is each of us is born to die.
We all have a lifespan, but the question is how will we use it? Death to the young is something far away and not a part of their present reality.
On the other hand, to some of the elderly, it seems like something in the very near future. The young and the old have something in common with death they will both experience it at some point.
There's a different group of people those individuals living with incurable chronic illnesses. Given a particular range of time, before they die. They are often motivated to live every day to its fullest to them, death is neither a friend nor foe; it just is their motivation.
It’s the power they use to forgive and love and enjoy every day as if it will be their last. Of the three groups, death has the greatest influence in the life of the person that knows they have no control over it!
It’s like an ocean of waves when we ride the board of hope. Death will not take us down, and instead, it will take us on an exhilarating journey of ups and downs and of highs and lows, it’s our reality Check! Death is the regulator of humanity
Read Chapter 15: 1 Corinthians 15:56 New King James Version (NKJV)
56 The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience
