Daily Prompt: Finite Creatures All

I don’t remember how old I was when a conversation I was having with my mother led me to the understanding that everyone dies.  I had thought that it was just random other people.  Initially I was told that only old people die and not to worry about it until my neighbors baby drowned in the bathtub when I was about 11 and I realized death can happen at any age.

When my brother, who was almost murdered in 2012, found out as a child that everyone had to die, he said something very profound; “What a waste of people!”

The fact that we do all have to die shows just how precious life is.  It’s impossible to hang on to even if you try so why would anyone make it harder for someone to do just that?

Anyone that can lay life to waste, like the flushing of a toilet, shows the world how stupid, evil and useless they really are.  They don’t have the intellect or wisdom to think of life as the sacred miracle it is.  Those are truly the dangerous ones.  The one’s whose life, and not death, are the waste.

Many kill, but how many do you know that can actually heal?

This is why I love the stories of Christ when He lived.  What he did for others physically and spiritually.  We don’t really stand a chance and yet Jesus tells us to believe.  I reason that since I know other things that Christ taught were factual, then it would stand to reason everything He said was indeed the truth.

We may leave this world behind one day, but some of us have the chance to live eternally in the spirit with God.
