Death Is No Friend

The Apostle Paul spoke of death as "the last enemy that shall be destroyed." I Cor. 15:26; Outwardly, most of us think we would like to see death abolished. But inwardly—unthinkingly—we accept death as necessary to the continuous and harmonious expression of life on earth.

If no one died, we might think, Where would all the people live and how would we feed them? And if animals, birds, insects, trees, and plants didn't die, the balance of nature problem would be complicated to say the least. So, though we may be saddened by death when it occurs close to us, and we may strive vitally to overcome it or avert it in individual instances, we may be hard put to find a reason for challenging death as a whole.
