“A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.”
From time to time, the subject of celebrating birthdays crops up.
Birthdays are days which are important to those who are of the world.
The only two birthdays celebrated in the Bible were Pharaoh’s and for Herod. Both men were the antithesis of godly.
Once one becomes born again, the date on which one’s original birth occurred just loses its significance.
When one is a true believer–a Christian–the second birth becomes much more important than the first.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Which is why we don’t celebrate birthdays around here any more.
