This current global pandemic has a positive side to it. The threat to our health and our lives slows us down to self-reflect more deeply.
The old have been mostly the ones dying of the virus. Millions get sick and hospitalized. The doctors and health workers feel helpless treating patients.
As Robert Kastenbaum noted in his book, “Old, Sick, and Helpless: Where Therapy Begins,” one can hardly get through the day without drawing a philosophy of life due to the severe trials.
A psychotherapy patient in his 40s puts it this way:
“I feel as though my whole life was built on a frozen lake. We all go on with our activities. We work on the house and play golf and entertain and have our fights. I put in long hours at work and think I’m doing well. Then every once in a while I think ‘This is ice I’m standing on and it’s melting.’ “
Shakespeare once wrote that we are all “worm food.”
Death can come to anyone, young or old, without a moment’s notice. It pursues us relentlessly throughout our days.
In death, everything in this life is going to be taken away from us.
With one essential exception: God’s love. His love goes to us in death and takes us through it. And into His eternal presence.
It’s the one thing you can’t lose. Without God’s love to save and embrace you, you will always feel insecure and fearful.

“Man is a worm and food for worms. This is the paradox: he is out of nature and hopelessly in it; he is dual, up in the stars, and yet housed in a heart-pumping, breath-grasping body that once belonged to a fish … Man is literally split in two: he has an awareness of his own splendid uniqueness in that he sticks out of nature with a towering majesty, and yet goes back to the ground a few feet in order blindly and dumbly to rot and disappear forever. It is a terrifying dilemma to be in and have to live with.” — Ernest Becker in his book “The Denial of Death”
“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:55)
“The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:56–57).
