A small child looked up at her gray haired and aged granddad and asked him if he was in the ark with Noah. Granddad laughed and said, "No hun, I wasn't with Noah in the ark." The child looked puzzled and after a long pause said, "then how come you didn't drown?" It is difficult for a young mind to understand age. When a youth does begin to understand it they proudly hold up the number of fingers with pride that reflect their years, then they get a little older and always want to be older than they really are, but as we continue to age we want people to think we are younger than we really are. Then when a person get's old enough, some at least, again take pride in the number of years they have lived. It's a process.
When young we think tomorrow will never get here. When old we wonder where all the yesterdays have gone. The perspectives are so different because the point of view is so different. But if it is so with us, how much more so it is with our Creator. With the Lord it is said, "One day is as a thousand years, and thousand years as one day" (II Peter 3:8). It is hard for us indeed to appreciate things from the view point of eternity and infinite God. To value the word of God and to live in His eternal plan brings peace and contentment to life. "Trust in the Lord forever, For in God the Lord, we have an everlasting Rock" (Isaiah 26:4).
