|Can you imagine being a
teenager when Christopher Colombus set sail
for the new world, live long enough to ride
over on the Mayflower, survive the Civil
War, World War 1 and 2, see man land on the
moon, and still only be half-way through
your life? That's approximately the length
of time Methuselah walked upon the earth.
Volumes could probably be written about the
things he must have seen, the stories he
could tell, and the lessons he must have
learned. But all we have recorded is that he
lived to be 969 years old. Maybe one of the
things we can learn from this is that God
puts a much greater emphasis on the quality
of a person's life rather than the quantity.
