Time has not eroded a few things, thankfully.
I mean, it’s amazing how an idea can survive the test of time.
Let’s pay attention to old things, and enjoy them when we can.
How incredible that stories of hope and practical action are still being told thousands of years later.
Those of us who grew up in Christian homes have been saturated in history and literature written between two and four thousand years ago, and time has not eroded their impact. One of the oldest pieces of written literature known to mankind, “The Epic of Gilgamesh,” was recorded on clay tablets some five thousand years ago, yet when we read it today, the story of Gilgamesh and Enkidu still resonates across the ages.
