Foods, beverages, drugs, cosmetic products... they all have an expiration date. Their usefulness are only good for a limited time. So, while they are still good, we make sure to get the most out of them.
It is the same thing with human. We have our expiration date, too. That is why while we are still alive, we should use our time in serving others through the special gifts that we have. Unlike the products that displays its expiration date, we, human doesn't know when will be our expiration date. I grow up with people who believed that dead people can help us by talking to us through our dreams. Some said that we can even ask protection from them, but this is foolishness in God's sight. The usefulness of human to fellow human is good only while they are alive. Once God take our lives, we can'thelp other people anymore. We are only good before our expiration date.
"I am Grace, while I'm still good, I'm at your service in sharing to you some biblical insights. While I'm still good, you may ask me some questions about life. While I'm still good, I can help pray for you."
"All the days ordained for me were written in your book..." Psalm 139:16 NIV
