Every day we spend 80% of our day in the rat race, doing all we can, struggling to make ends meet, desperate to get rich or die trying. But does any one really want to die? Death is looked upon with dread, something definite but unforeseeable. Nobody actually plans to die but maybe it’s high time we started planning to die since death is inevitable.
Have you thought of the after life? And where you will spend eternity? Many people have spent more years in the grave than they ever did alive but wouldn’t life be far less complicated if they were truly only decomposing in coffins below the ground? They say man is a spirit and man has a soul. We know of a truth that the body is a temporary casing and this casing comes with an expiry date. So what happens to your soul? If you could plan your death and insure the time you spent away from your body, where would you plan to go? Heaven or Hell? Insurance companies make a fortune insuring your life but who insures the afterlife?
A wise Christian once said if there’s no Heaven and Hell then you and I end up dead, 6 feet under- we both win but if there’s a Heaven and a Hell, I end up in Heaven and you end up in Hell- Both ways I win!
I was watching Bigbrother Africa one night when Bev was talking about a girl she knew who was bent on enjoying her life to the fullest and then going to Hell and would even ask to be made a queen there and I couldn’t help laughing out loud howbeit painfully. Why would you wanna spend forever in a place anything less than beautiful (and remember, nobody has ever counted to forever, even if you spent every second of your life counting you wouldn’t even hit the uncountable number not to mention the infinity number and let me not even get started with the forever number. You’d probably die at 900 zillion or something!) -and then there’s the fire. I am a medical doctor and I have had my share of treating burn victims and it’s one of the most heart-wrenching medical conditions there is. Imagine the agony they went through being roasted alive, the pain, the torture, the torment. For someone to willingly wanna endure that FOREVER then all I can say is wow.
I wanna implore you on this beautiful Tuesday evening to wager well. Don’t gamble away your afterlife. I’d rather be a winner anyhow you put it than risk being a forever loser. Yes God is merciful but think about all those big signboards that warn about high tension cables. If you still go ahead and grab hold of one of them would you say the government or the electricity commission was wicked? That’s why there are warnings. Pay attention!
People die every day. You don’t know what terrorists are planning to bomb your neighborhood or if the building you are in is gonna collapse or if you are gonna get killed in a car crash. There are more than one thousand ways to die and unfortunately for us mere mortals we never can guess when time will be up so like the die-hard insurance companies will say, insure your afterlife TODAY. You don’t have anything to lose but you have everything to gain.
The winner takes it all!
Have a lovely evening chutzpah fam,
