Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man who had lived a full life. He joined his ancestors.
[Gen 25:8 NET]
Scaffoldings are for buildings, and the moments and days and years of our earthly lives are scaffolding. What are you building inside it? What kind of a structure will be disclosed when the scaffolding is knocked away? Days and years are ours, that they may give us what eternity cannot take away a character built upon the love of God in Christ, and moulded into His likeness.
Has your life helped you to do that? If so, you have got the best out of it, and your life is completed, whatever may be the number of its days. Quality, not quantity, is the thing that determines the perfectness of a life. Has your life this completeness?
