Some short words as this are meant to do justice, imagine going through a lot and someone just walks up to you and tells you "none would live forever", I bet you'd be so scared, like that's some creepy words to tell someone, yet amidst that we can't take away the fact that it's very true, we all in our majesty and superiority can't and won't leave this world alive, I guess that fact should have been accepted by this time. Maybe as teenagers and children, we'll reject the saying but now we know better, all we have to do is pray for long life, in God's protection.
Shortly, I'll be sharing with us, a few key notes, that this short words is meant to send to us, I mean what we should learn from the fact that we all have a finishing date. God in his infinite wisdom saw it best that we don't have a portal where we just walk and fall of living, or rather just disappear at a certain age, he saw it best that we all have different and unknown timing, when we would go and we signify this by depositing our bodies down the soil, as it has been said "dust ye were made, to dust ye return " creepy again. Well it is what it is.
Now let's talk about the significant lessons to be learnt from this fact that none would make it out alive.
1. Take life Easy
Already the demand and needs for life are paramount, you can't help but chase after them, like you don't work and you want to eat, there's no magic to that, work has to be done, luckily you've got someone doing the work for you to relax, still there are many other things to bother the mind as we live. Things like would I be happy, I'm so skinny, I'm so short, I'm so light skinned, I always get heart broken, health issues, psychological trauma, bad events, country issues, wars and crisis, natural disasters, bad home, physical challenges or defects, we can't possibly have it all rosey, we all signed up for the game as soon as we were born, however whenever we remember that we would die someday, it's a call to take it easy.
To know that this challenges are part of lives course and rather than beat yourself each and every time, rather than swinging into depression, rather than shedding tears, we have to see ways of making life make us happy. A change of mindset perhaps, a deliberate effort to be happy since soon we all would be leaving soon. I've seen people you'd never think to be happy again, maybe because of physical conditions or financial issues, yet they appear happier and you'd begin to envy them. Quite a number have taken up the task of helping people with their problems be better and happier, like I said in my most previous articles, this are life's greatest gifts.
2. Bother Less When People Hurt
Just like the parable of Lazarus and the rich man, well not saying that everyone who hurts us must go to hell, we just have to know that it all comes to an end so, shortly it wouldn't matter again, more reason to be at peace with everyone. Luckily for us, our good works would count for something, God sees all and would judge all, so when people genuinely hurts you and it's like you don't know how to get revenge or justice for yourself, especially when it's not a reportable crime to authorities, you could still be assured that God sees and all wouldn't matter much anymore soon.
People tend to oppress a lot, and its saddening especially for the larger number of striving people, the economy however has more regards to the high and mighty, although they belong to the fewer sect, but their wealth and position places them high and fix so many below them, as to this we have seen them act like untouchable, we have seen them do enough and still go away with it, and we can only wonder, is there no justice for such wickedness. Well there is and soon it all won't matter. They can bribe their way through anything but never through death. They too would give it all up one day and dance to the beat of their deeds. This should make us calm and relaxed too.
3. Prepare For Tomorrow
I greater reason for this is so we can prepare for tomorrow, if you have kids or family then try as much as possible to position them for better. Also our lifestyle must be in accordance because we are here for an appointed time, so we have to live right so we don't miss the bigger picture. Another thing to prepare for is the matter of the heart and affairs, we meet different people to whom we never know who we might be seeing again, so we must make each time count, tell those that matter that they do really matter to you. Say I love you as much as possible to those who you love. Ensure each day you're trying to be on track.
However it's bad if we live with the fear of death, we shouldn't be thinking of that everytime, it would hinder a lot, rather be happy, just know we are many, everyone is in this together and laugh. It's fun, we all are in this road together, you'll be missing out of the fun if you're so bothered and afraid. Take it easy, you're not alone. Yet work for success cause you have a long time to go. In all serve God faithfully cause that is the big picture. We only have one life, so Enjoy.
