Dust and Destiny : Fifteen Sermons (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Dust and Destiny: Fifteen Sermons A strangely contradictory choice of words is woven together in this passage of Scripture from which our text is taken. Extremes are welded: corruption and incorruption; mortality and im mortality. We know corruption. We know mor tality. We were born and raised among them. They have greeted us everywhere. We have been in constant fight against them. We have painted our decayiiig houses. We have doctored our staggering, failing, dying mortality to establish it in the longest run, and push the grave over behind the farthest horizon. The reason for all this being that something within us has forever cried out against corruption and mortality. Dominant as those things are here on earth, mankind has gone ever about his destiny in a confidence that they were not ultimates. We have shaken them off. We have built them out. We have felt the pulse of immortality. One time when David was wrestling with this same thing he looked up out of his conscious mortality and said, Thou knowest our frame; Thou remem hereth that we are dust; and then, as though he would not be content with such a description.
