Age Ain't Nothing But A Number

If you read some of the old testament stories you find that some that are mentioned were in excess of one hundred years in age.

Deuteronomy 34:7 Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone.
 In our time the here and now. It does not matter how long our bodies occupy space on this earth. It is ultra important as to what you do with your time while here. In the letters that Paul wrote to the churches he drills home what it is God expects of us.  He lets us know that because man has so many weaknesses God sent a savior for all of mankind. Though Jesus was sent to die for our sins it does not lessen the burden on us to be all that we can be. To show love, compassion, kindness, charity, goodness unconditionally. That is what God wants us to do. Simple right? Not for many. We have to work hard to repent of our sins. To acknowledge God at all times. To steer away from wrong and evil. All the while we are growing older,  our deeds are being logged, by the ultimate bookkeeper.
