Life starts - life ends. From our human perspective we count one of these as a blessing and another as a curse. However, if we live with eternal perspective we will look at our end (or the end for a loved one) differently. Not that we won't grieve but that instead of seeing this as a bad thing we look instead with thankfulness for what awaits on the other side of our hearts stopping.
in Genesis 5, everyone is living for a very long time. Everyone but Enoch who would live a meager 365 years (wow).
“When Enoch was 65 years old, he became the father of Methuselah. After the birth of Methuselah, Enoch lived in close fellowship with God for another 300 years, and he had other sons and daughters.. Enoch lived 365 years walking in close fellowship with God. Then one day he disappeared, because God took him.”
Genesis 5:21- 24 NLT
Was this a bad thing happening to a good person or a reward for someone walking close to God?
