What Truly Matters

Today, I saw a man in a coffin. Prayerfully at peace.

It reminded me of how short life is.
Of how we should focus on what matters.
In this life. That this life is temporary.
That there is the next life — long and lasting.

Too often, in life, we fight unnecessary battles.
We create unnecessary chaos.
We contribute to confusion.
Why do we do so?

But when we see the face of death,
When we see the matter of mortality,
We are reminded of what really matters.

Truly, at the end of our lives,
We DO NOT ask –
how many arguments we’ve won
how we displayed our intelligence
how we made a name of our own
NO!

We rather ask –
Did I live?
Did I love?
Did I contribute to the community?

Tough, isn’t it?
That’s why we need God’s grace.
His mercy and grace…
