Think about it.....

Wouldn’t It Be Nice

Wouldn’t it be nice if every person you ever met were kind? That people still opened doors for others, that courtesy was shown in parking lots and checkout lines. Wouldn’t it be nice if only the bad people died early and suffered terrible things and the good people lived on and received great rewards? Could you imagine a world like that? It would be nice, but it doesn’t happen.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could eat anything you wanted and never gain an ounce? Or travel to any where in the world and find peace? Wouldn’t it be nice if neighbors didn’t fight with neighbors and everyone got along? That there would be no more wars, poverty, tsunami’s, hardships of any kind, jobs and prosperity for all, and peace on earth. Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a place like that? It would be nice, but it doesn’t exist.

Wouldn’t it be nice if people admitted when they were wrong, and that they didn’t blame others for the problems they experience. And life wasn’t about “self”, but was about the other person and that we thought about others before ourselves. It would be nice, but more often the opposite is true.

Wouldn’t it be nice if our money lasted forever, that the gas prices were back to what they were in the 60’s, that we all grew old with grace and health, and that death was peaceful and painless. And wouldn’t it be nice if we kept our hair, all of our teeth, and our bodies keep its youthful abilities. It would be nice, but it’s not going to happen.

In case you haven’t noticed, life isn’t getting better or easier. Inflation does exist, pain is real, and we all die. From the moment of our birth we are moving towards our death, for it comes to everyone and it’s a reality. Is there hope? Yes there is, and it’s found in Jesus Christ for our purpose and his are connected. How they will intercept will be determined by your choices. 

Think about it.

All that is stated is true. It is just it takes a life time to realize it. As I age I realize so much that I wish I had known when I was young. But I didn't listen to my elders and had to learn myself.

There's no such thing as god.

Thank you for writing a very thoughtful article. The world is sometime a "ME ME ME" place, so simply thinking more about your fellow man (and woman) before acting or speaking would be a good dream.

Dear Anonymous 10:47 -- Some people believe in God, and some people don't. You've made your personal point. Period.

I believe Aliens put us here. So therefore they are my gods.

I agree, this place needs more love and compassion. A lot of people have stoped believeing in God, because there are so many that don't uphold God's values anymore we have lost our way and believe in a dog eat dog world, because we have forgotten compassion and kindness as well as God. I for one believe in God and believe he does keep what little good there is left in thiis world.

Amen 6:48, they just want the attention & people to react, I totally ignore their ignorance because God loves them even with their ignorance! I do not push God on anyone, they make their own choices & believe what they want to believe! I know there is a God & live my life daily thanking Him, for His goodness & for His mercies He renews for me everyday! That is my choice & my belief, like I said we all make choices & those who do not believe in God that is their choice and they will one day answer for that choice! & I will one day REJOICE for my CHOICE!
