Quote from Death By Living

 


Seventy years. Eighty if you’re strong. Less if you’re like the Messiah. Look to Him and receive more grace. Stagger on. You can do it. Only a decade more. Or two. Or four. But there is a finish line. There will be an end to the weight on your back and the ache in your skull. This place is no Tartarus, and our God is no scrooge. He gives without ceasing. Even when we fell, when our first parents defied Him, the first thing He gave to them was an end, mortality, a path to resurrection, and the promise of a Guide.
And then He clothed them.

— N. D. Wilson, Death By Living (p.114)
