When we die, our money remains in the bank, yet when we are alive, we don’t have enough to spend. In reality when we are gone, there is still a lot of money not spent.
One business tycoon in China passed away. His widow who was left with $1.9billion in the bank, married his chauffeur. His chauffeur said, “ALL THE WHILE I THOUGHT I WAS WORKING FOR MY BOSS… IT IS ONLY NOW, THAT I REALIZED THAT MY BOSS WAS ALL THE TIME WORKING FOR ME”!
The cruel reality is; It is more important to live longer than to have more wealth. So we must strive to have a strong and healthy body. No wonder Psalm 62:10 says, “Trust not in oppression and become not vain in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart upon them”…..
I realized that in a sophisticated modern phone which I was given as a gift, 89% of the functions are useless to me……
For expensive cars, 70% of the speed and gadgets are not needed.
If you own a luxurious villa or mansion, 70% of the space is usually not used or occupied.
How about your wardrobes of clothes(shoes, bags, jewelries etc). 70% of them are not used or worn!
A whole life of work and earning…70% is for others to spend.
So we must protect and make full use of our 30% wisely. Go for medical check-ups even if you are not sick, drink more water even if you are not thirsty.
– LEARN TO LET GO, EVEN IF FACED WITH GRAVE PROBLEMS.
– ENDEAVOR TO GIVE IN, EVEN IF YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT.
– REMAIN HUMBLE EVEN IF YOU ARE VERY RICH AND POWERFUL.
– LEARN TO BE CONTENTED, EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT RICH.
– EXERCISE YOUR MIND AND BODY, EVEN IF YOU ARE VERY BUSY.
LIFE IS SHORT..
LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST!
