Today I had a discussion over lunch with a friend of mine about life, I was so moved by our conversation that I just had to share it with you.
At the end of ones life,no one considers the possession of a person. They are more concerned with what the person did, who he helped, how he impacted their lives. At the end even the degrees become useless. So the best we can do, and the wisest at that, is to yield our lives to God,to work towards becoming more like Christ each day. I am convinced tht at the judgement throne, we shall be tried based on two laws only.
The first question, did you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind?
The second question, did you love your neighbor like you love yourself?
God doesn’t care if you go to school or nnot,if you were rich or not, just this two questions will count at the end. Take time to seriously ponder this questions and if you think you fall short, then by all means begin to work towards them. You don’t have to do something big, but little things like helping people you can help, being a wonderful role model to some kids, praying for people in difficulty, sowing into ministries for the movement of the gospel, giving to the needy arund you, opening a foundation, volunteering at a charity, these are a few of the ways we can have impact in our generation, and it helps us answer the second question confidently. Remember, what we do for ourselves dies with us, but what we do for others, lives forever.
As for the first question, no amount of education can take Gods place as the centre of not just our lives, but life in general. He is the giver of all good blesses, all the opportunities come from Him and sometimes yes we miss them but He is still able to brng them back to us in other ways. He loved us first, He created us, we at least owe Him our love also. Not because we have to, but in gratitude.
So as you go out today, remember to live like it was your last day and to be the best and do the best you can in every situation.
