“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” (Genesis 2:7, Holy Bible, King James Version)

“Take a deep breath,” my cardiologist says at each checkup. He skillfully moves a stethoscope and listens to the rhythmic heartbeat that declares life is present. Next he says, “Now regular breathing.” The cardiologist doesn’t stop there. He reads the electrocardiogram to see if my heart rhythms are regular.

When death claims my human body, my soul, the greatest treasure, will live forever.

Prayer: Eternal God, When my life has no earthly presence, my soul will live eternally with you. Amen.
