WHAT YOU BRING TO THE WORLD- NOTHING!
WHAT YOU TAKE FROM THE WORLD-NOTHING!
Then why do you live your life as if you own everything?
I am going to tell you a story. Listen carefully:
Once a Swiss industrialist, who was living in Bale, happened to cross a cemetery one winter’s day. Snow covered most of the gravestones making it impossible to read the inscriptions. Suddenly he stopped. On one gravestone sheltered by a pine tree a name could be read. It was his own name “Charles Mez”. He did not know who that namesake of his might be, whose body rested there, but the fact that the only legible name in the whole cemetery was his own made a profound impression on him. “Where would I be now? If my body, separated from my soul, lay under there.” Standing alone in the middle of that icy landscape illustrating the state of his soul, he acknowledged his sins, his indifference, his scorn for God’s love. The gospel heard on other occasions without him paying attention to it, suddenly impressed itself upon him as something living and personal. He turned to Jesus, prayed and obtained peace of heart that the Son of God gives. From that day life of Charles Mez showed that he belonged to Jesus Christ. His joy was to serve Him.
Understand just a small lesson from this. If we are born on this earth one day, we will go from this earth on an unexpected one day. Don’t wait until then to acknowledge your life and your deeds. Do not let your soul suffer and weep for the misdeeds you did on earth. This life on earth is temporary. You can see the cruelty of death around you, yet you are kept safe by the love of God. Think how much he loves you for that. He kept you safe from evil men, lustful desires, evil traps, evil spirits, disasters, diseases, wild animals, sudden death etc.. He blessed you with a home, family, shelter and food. Think how much it means. How much it is worth. He gave a gift of Bible full of promises. So isn’t it your turn to thank Him for all that is given to you and your loved ones? Yes, that’s what God loves so much.He loves acknowledgement of His blessings. So isn’t you turn to acknowledge Him as God?
So pray everyday, Make God a priority in your life, forgive others, Love unconditionally and “Do good, speak good and feel good.” Don’t wait for things until its too late. Start from now. Have a blessed day! 🙂
