It was the 7th day of creation. God was pleased in what His eyes was seeing, Everything turned out perfectly according to his plan. Well.. almost perfect. He decided to settle things first before going to rest. He went to the garden and looked for the Man, the Carabao, the Horse and the Dog.
"Come forth, my beloved creations. it's now my time to rest, but first, I shall bestow upon you a gift that you will cherish while dwelling here on earth. the Span of life."
Carabao, all your days you will become the man's helper in his endeavor. you will help him in farming and cultivating lands and carrying heavy loads. I will give you 40 years.
Man, because you are my favorite creation, I will give you 20 yrs to enjoy life
Thank You God.
Why 40 yrs God? We are thankful for the span of life, but can we request to live just half of 40 yrs?All our life will be full of hardships, 40yrs is too long God.
"Very well, wish granted." Saith God without hesitation. Then He rested.
And as for you dog, i will also give you 40 yrs. you will guard the man's house all your life
God, can i humbly ask that the 20 yrs deducted from each of their yrs, be added to mine?
Horse, you will help man as his mean of transportation...you will make his journey lighter and easier. I also give you 40 yrs
