Some time ago I lost my father. My life stopped for a while. But it’s Christmas. New life was born to save us. Both, birth and death, are part of life. There is time in life for grief, but there is also time for joy. For simple joy of life. If I die, I wish to people smile remembering me. I don’t want anybody to be sad. We met, we shared our joy and sorrows. We should keep for ever sweet memories of the time spent together.
Yesterday some friend shared with me “Viva la vida” performed by great violinist David Garrett. I fell in love with that from first listening 🙂 Merry Christmas everybody! Viva la vida!
I was thinking lately what for we are sent on this world. This guy is an answer. When we have to choose – career, money, own pleasures or somebody else’s life, choice should be simple. Earthly treasures are nothing, because in the moment of death we will stay with nothing. We will go to God as we came on this world – naked.
On the final judgement we will hear:
“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
“Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
You can find full text in Bible, Matthew 25:31-46
It’s sad, but if Jesus Christ knocked to our door nowadays asking for food and bed, most of us would advice him to get some job, and to find a hotel. It’s sad reality. But he won’t come with certificate, that he is God’s son, but as ordinary human. What if he is already here going from door to door looking for those, who will invite him in? He can be old, young, man, woman, white, black, slim, fat. He can come as everybody.
God tests us every day. Not many will pass a test. That guy, who left what he dreamed about, and worked for many years just to help a stranger, passed a test with the best note. And everybody, who forgets about themselves in order to help others, will pass it. Chapeaux bas for Cameron Lyle, and people similar to him.
For those, who don’t believe in God – it’s enough, that you are good people to get reward. God is love, so whoever love people selflessly, and who does good to others has God in heart 🙂
Yes, we meet on our path of life people, who have ability of lighting the flame within us, when our own light gone. It’s important to notice their presence, and be grateful. I had that luck to meet such people, and no matter, what life will bring, I’ll be thankful God for putting them on my path of life. My endless gratitude to all, that lifted me up, when I was down, who cared, when I was sad or ill, and who had patience for me, when I was unbearable 🙂
