Knowing what matters most

“When you are in the final days of your life, what will you want?

Will you hug that college degree in the walnut frame? Will you ask to be carried to the garage so you can sit in your car? Will you find comfort in rereading your financial statement? Of course not. What will matter then will be people. If relationships will matter most then, shouldn’t they matter most now?”

  1. LOL. I was wondering where you were going there. Yeah I understand. Everyone does have their view of life and do what they can to live by it. Why do you think some people do not believe that relationships count?

      • I think that the saddest state is to die alone with nobody there….nobody to pray with you just lonely…and isolated. But that’s what happens with Prideful people who isolate themselves away from people with their greed…stuff can’t tell you they love you. People do that…

      • I think that your right.Those are a few factors but sometimes selfishness can be cultivated when parents spare the rod I say. If a child learns at an early age that they can get whatever they want…do they really know how to value what’s important as they grow up????? I doubt it from some people I’ve encountered. sometimes it takes some to lose it all to know what it is that they should value….but the real question is does it even have to get to that point???? some clearly prefer the rough road as oppose to living at peace with others. What do you think?

  2. Tarisai, I was itching all day to write a reply but I was at work. Can’t get fired lol! Somehow I feel pity for all those who isolate themselves and subsequently die alone. I mean, as a caregiver who works both holidays and non-holidays, I see the longing on the faces of those who choose to be alone. Kinda sad.

    • I love what Dr Mike Murdock says, “Arrogance is not thinking that you are important. It is thinking others are not important.” I love King Solomon says, “Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone?” Ecclesiastes 4:11. Being cold to everyone else doesn’t help in the present and the future. In a sense, the present determines the future. If they set their future up through remaining alone now…
