My Daily Journal:

Death is not inevitable.  Our existence is so much more than a fatalist “we live and then we die.”  We are ultimately not bound by laws of nature or time.  We are not constrained by our ancestry or the actions of our fathers.  But what truly makes a difference and what truly last are the choices we make.

It is not that all of those things don’t impact and influence us, they do.  But our choice of how we relate to God transcends that and enables us to unite with the divine.

Enoch chose to walk with God for eternity.
