HE WAS WORKING FOR HIS CHAUFFEUR: LIFE IS SHORT!
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!
