|The 'dead' Were Once Alive by oyetunder(m): 3:56pm On Jul 01, 2016|
THE 'DEAD' WERE ONCE ALIVE:- All around us people are dying all the time! Yes, those we know and those we do not know are dropping dead every second. No second passes without someone somewhere dying. Isolated and combined graves dotted our geographical terrains to remind us about the final reality of this earthly life.
Sad indeed, despite all these things; most of us who are still breathing are living as if we shall be here forever. The unbridled quests for money, power, fame, position among others have veiled the souls of many to the reality of death.
Oh, we have forgotten that those lying silently in their coffins were once alive and bubbling...they too had unlimited ambitions, they desired and occupied positions, they ruled in the affairs of men, and they commanded money.
It is true; those whose skeletons are decaying today deep inside the soils of those cemeteries were once beautiful and handsome...they chased, dated, and married the dynamic men and angelic women of their times and seasons. But 'death' ended their adventures and voyages...and like a sun, they set into a total darkness.
We that are blessed to still be alive at this very moment should remember our Creator...we should consider our Maker in our ways. We must not forget that each passing second brings us closer to the end of our sojourn on this planet.
In our race to be the most popular, richest and powerful we must not forget that none of us is sure of that moment when we shall take the bow and be left for others to bury. We must not allow our minds to be deceived into thinking we shall be here forever in flesh.
The toys, materials, cars, houses, husbands, wives, children, friends, foods, drinks, positions and titles we love so much shall one day be separated from us when that whistle blows. Teach us to number our days oh Jesus.
