Our Souls are BETTER than our Bodies
I heard a true story the other day that is STILL bothering me.
It seems that this 60 plus year old woman died in her house and no one noticed she was even gone for two weeks. Someone finally took notice and went to her house to check on her and she was dead. The REALLY bad part that has been bothering me (as if the two week thing wasn't sad enough) is that her 15 dogs had been eating her. One of her arms was gone and both of her legs from the knees down were gone. (I am writing this and my sweet little "Maggie" is sleeping beside me. She would eat me if I died.....)
This story reminded me so much of II Kings 9:35-37 about Jezebel and how she was a king's daughter and yet she was thrown out of a window and the dogs ate everything but her skull, feet, and hands.
Is there a bottom line here? Our SOULS apparently make up who we are because after we die, our bodies can become dog food.
Pretty sobering thought.
