Look Ahead

Re: Verse reading–Deuteronomy 34 (day four)
Moses was 120 years old.  He had learned to submit to God and His plan.  Even though Moses’ strength was not abated and his eye was not dim, he did not argue with God about not going into the promise land.  Moses knew he should not argue.  He had questioned God in the past as to why God had done things the way He did (i.e. – why did you send me out here with these obstinate people?).  Now, at the end of Moses life, he accepted that he would not be able to do some things he wanted to do…like go into the Promised Land.  There was no man like Moses.  He had been used powerfully by God.  How do we grow old?  Do we continually try to play younger than we are?  Maybe our health does not allow us to go and do like we used to.  Billy Graham has said, “one thing I can still do is pray.”  Our most important work of our life may still be before us.  Don’t miss it by looking back!
