Life in the hand of God

It's not a crime to reach the Biblical "threescore years and ten," any more than it's intrinsically wrong to be a teen-ager, an infant, or middle-aged. But if the whole subject of age is left to the vagaries of mortal existence, there are penalties aplenty attached to every stage of our lives.

Life is often burdened by too much of some things and too little of others. But it's not one's age that's the culprit, even though we're often tempted to use that as a handy peg on which to hang the whole thorny question "What in the world am I worth, to myself or anyone else?"
