Sin’s entrance into the world meant not only that our lives would be short, but that the shortness would be painful. In Psalm 90 Moses addresses this problem; according to David it’s one of the things that God uses to draw us toward Him.
Christians love grace, don’t we? We rightly thank God for our salvation, the hope of glory, the blessings of redemption. God’s grace extends to all people, all of creation, not just to God’s people. It’s what we call common grace.
