Use By Date
On jar lidspacket edges, in neat computer printing are dates: “Use by …” “Best Before …” A sign of finite life, Limited use, and inevitable corruption. The average life span for men in Australia is. 79.7 years. Is that a “best before” or “use by” date? Or is every second a gift to be cherished and lived, whether many or few? For there is no “Use By” date” in the Kingdom of God.
