Save your soul


Save your soul*

My money,  my house,  my  car,  my  children,  my  certificates,  my  job,  my  husband,  my  wife,  my  families,  my  clothes,  my  SHOE.....
My !  My!!  My !!! What  is  this  life worth for?

A  man  was informed  about the  death  of his  father,  but  he  tarried.  
When  the body started  smelling,  neighbours  took  his  father's corpse  to  the  mortuary  for  preservation.

A  week  later,  he went  to  the mortuary  to  see the  corpse  of  his  father.  When  he  was  about  to enter  the  place, there  was  a poster  placed  at the  entrance  of the  mortuary,  which  no  one  can miss to notice.  

It  read:
“ WE  WERE  LIKE YOU  BEFORE, 
BUT WE  ARE NOW HERE. ”

The  young  man read  it,  but  it didn't  make  any sense  to  him.

He went inside, checked the dead body and after  a  few  minutes, he made his exit.

 As he was about to step outside, he saw another poster placed on a prominent location, which no one  will fail to read.  

It  read:
“ YOU  WILL  SOON  BE  LIKE US. ”

These words touched his stone heart and he started to feel sad and repented for not respecting his father's death that  moment. 

He slowly began to understand that

Everything  here on  earth  is  like  a  dream,  a  vapour. Life  itself  is  not  real,  as everything  is temporary.

You  will  soon  be  like  those  that  were  once Living , Eating  , Sleeping ,  Walking  , Talking  ,  Laughing  here on  earth ,  but  today ......
They're  NO  MORE.

When  he  got  to his  father's mansion,  there was  nobody  to talk  to,  his  father had left  his  shoes,  clothes,  money, bed,  cars, EVERYTHING.

As  he  was  searching  his father's wardrobes,  he saw  untouched brand new dollars,  well packed  and arranged,  but  the owner  of  the money  was  in  the  mortuary.  
The  young  boy remembered, the words

 “ WE  WERE  LIKE YOU  BEFORE; " 
" YOU  WILL SOON  BE LIKE  US. ” 

He  cried as he realized the reality.

One can eat well when alive, 
When dead  becomes food  for  maggots.

One can drive  a  nice car  today, 
 but tomorrow,  a car drives him to cemetery.

One can live  in  a mansion  today, 
but  tomorrow will  live  in  burial ground.

One can sleep  in  a nice  bed  today, 
but  tomorrow, will sleep  inside  the  Grave !

****
But the soul is the real you. 
It lives on after death waiting to be 
reunited with the CREATOR.

Don't run after the fake when you are alive but work for your soul to reunite with Him.
