Genesis 47:9 (KJV) And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.
The life of Jacob was not as long as those of his family who lived before him. But, Jacob ended up living a tremendous life for God. We are the same, some live longer than others, some do not. What counts is what we are able to accomplish for God during the lifespan we have. Let us be sure to redeem the time.
(Read Hebrews 11:9-10)
