The way people die these days is so rampant. The most shocking part is they die in their sleep or collapse and die in the bus or train. Most people die at a very young age and claim never to be sick, but their death came as a shock.
Here is the truth, it is not the day someone dies that they died. There must have been signs that have been ignored and were not taken care of.
Most people, especially Africans, have hipped on themselves too many responsibilities that caused them to panic at every given chance. They do not take rest, maybe because of what they want or what their family members want. Lots of people living in the western world engage in 2-3 jobs a day and do that seven times a week. They even work long hours that give them little or no time to rest.
Here is one thing you must know. Human beings are never satisfied. Some of them are like the Israelites that were never satisfied. Irrespective of all God did for them, they kept on demanding and complaining about what they want. They were fed with manners from heaven, but soon forgot and demanded water.
Note in all this is that they never acknowledged God, they were not even concerned to know him personally. When Moses delayed in coming down with the ten commandments, they murmured and decided to make an image that will represent God.
No matter how you try to help people, they must complain, especially when things are no longer flowing as usual. This might be as a result of you getting married and having your own family, loss of job, sickness, or planning to invest in a new business or career. The only thing people who are energy and life suckers do is to demand what they want. Ungrateful people are like a basket that can never retain water.
It is very good to help people, but you must know that if you are not full, you can never serve others. You need to be physically and emotionally balanced to be able to help others genuinely. Be wise, take rest, save for your future, be honest with yourself stop impressing others without you genuinely helping yourself.
