|WHAT GOD WILL ASK OF YOU|
|Every morning we wake up, thinking about not going to work…
Maybe because of yesterday’s stress?
But we have no choice but to do it.
So we brush our teeth (dentures included),
go to the bathroom (and try to sleep some more – be honest!),
have breakfast (usually leftovers of yesterday, recycled food, etc.), and
prepare to go to work (and battle with bus and transit commuters).
In the office we work all day (sometimes blur all day),
struggle with the terrible MS documents (congratulations when your PC hangs in the middle of a very important, urgently needed and unsaved file),
until we drop dead (some even look dead without dropping).
Sometimes, we still need to do overtime (often would be more appropriate for some).
Before going to bed, we will always look at the calendar looking forward to Saturday and Sunday because they are days that are synonymous to sales, party, night out and dates.
That’s our life!!! Sad but true.
Life is how we make it, not how it happens. It is how we focus on God and not on ourselves.
It is how you spend your life that describes “living”, on what God wants and not what we want.
And in this cycle we call life, we are the ones who are next in line.
What has life got to offer us when we grow old?
How about when our life ends?
Do you know what questions God will ask you?

God won’t ask how much overtime you worked, but will ask if you worked overtime for your family and loved ones.
God won’t ask about the fancy clothes you have in your closet but will ask how many of these clothes helped the needy.
God won’t ask you your social status but will ask what kind of class you displayed.
God won’t ask how many material possessions you had but will ask if they dictated your life.
God won’t ask what your highest salary is but will ask if you compromised your character to obtain that salary.
God won’t ask how many promotions you received but will ask how you promoted others.
God won’t ask what your job title was but will ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.
God won’t ask what you did to help yourself but will ask what you did to help others.
God won’t ask how many friends you had but will ask how many people to whom you were a true friend.
God won’t ask what you did to protect your rights but will ask what you did to protect the rights of others.
God won’t ask in what neighborhood you lived but will ask how you treated your neighbors.
God won’t ask about the color of your skin but will ask about the content of your character.
God won’t ask how many times your deeds matched your words but will ask how many times they didn’t.
