"To nothing are we more prone than to the dream of immortality on earth, unless death is frequently brought before our eyes." Calvin Gen. I:230

"The mitigation of sorrow is chiefly to be sought for, in the hope of a future life." Calvin Gen 2:477

"The ceremony of mourning over the dead arose from a good principle; namely, that the living should meditate on the curse entailed by sin upon the human race" Calvin Gen. II:476

Hi Chestnutmare,

Your post reminds me of an anecdote that Spurgeon refers to more than once:

"Yea, the truth is so great, that God has blessed every word of Scripture, that I remember a striking anecdote of the conversion of a man by a passage of Scripture that did not seem adapted for any such purpose. You know that chapter in Genesis, that very dull chapter, where we read, "and Methusaleh lived 969 years, and he died," and such a one lived so many years and he died? We have heard of its being read once in public; and a man who stood there, when he heard the words often repeated, "and he died," thought, "Ah! and I shall die!" And it was the first note of warning that had ever struck his seared conscience, and was the means under God of bringing him to Jesus."
~Spurgeon - from his sermon entitled "Search the Scriptures"

That really is a wonderful reminder Tracylight of the value of all of Scripture. Thank you for sharing this.

Not all those who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost.
