Vital to the end

Re: Verse reading–Deuteronomy 34 (day seven)
“Death is not the greatest loss in life.  The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.”–Norman Cousins   Know anyone who is already dead?  Not physically.  Spiritually and emotionally?  It isn’t inevitable.  All of us die physically.  Death of the dream is avoidable.  “Moses was one hundred twenty years old when he died; his sight was unimpaired and his vigor had not abated.”  (v 7)  He was vital to the end.  Never gave himself permission to withdrawn or stop hoping or volunteering.  Walking with the Spirit, his attention toward God and kingdom progress was the same as when he was half his age.  Maybe it is the fact that I turned 60 this summer.  Maybe it is all the notices from Social Security and AARP that have been coming to my house.  I am glad for the reminder.  Life in the Spirit is infinite and every believer can be an illustration of this truth.
