Funerals Beat Parties

October 1, 2016

We presume death won’t catch us.  In our sane, more rational moments we know we can’t escape death or taxes, but it’s so easy to just avoid it and put it in back of our minds.  Psalm 90:12 advises us to number our days. Maybe this is why Solomon claims it is better to attend a funeral because it makes us think about life, while the party diverts us from the concerns of life. Parties aren’t evil and funeral’s righteous, but they each do different things to our minds.
