Today my daughter and I were reading about Noah in Genesis, Noah lived to be 950 years old, can you believe it? I am not sure that I can even imagine living that long. But God decided that Noah was the only person on the face of the earth that was worth saving. One of the things that stood out to my daughter was that the animals in the water were never mentioned until the flood water receded. Interesting…
I guess I had never thought of the sea life before, in the story of Noah and the Ark. Were they saved? Did the fresh water kill off the salt water fish and vice versa? Isn’t it interesting that when we read something in the Bible we have seen movies about that the book is always better than the movies.
Nine hundred and fifty years! Think about the size of that cake and he amount of candles that would be needed. Wow, I cannot even imagine getting through one hundred years with all the aches and pains I have already and I am not even at the half century mark.
Can you imagine living that long? I guess we could have an amazing ministry for God and share more about his love and forgiveness in that amount of time. However, on the flip side, that is 950 years waiting to see our Father, Jesus and our loved ones again. But if we all lived that long, we would have so much more time to be with our loved ones, right?
I don’t know which would be better. What are your thoughts on living that long?
Prayers to you and yours. Until next time,
