Ecclesiastes 3:20

20All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return.  

Supposedly happy moments had turned tragic when a limousine failed to stop at an intersection of Routes 30 and 30A in upstate New York. All 20 people in the limo died. “Probably, the limousine was traveling down the hill at probably over 60mph,” observers assumed. The road has a 50mph speed limit in the area of the intersection. Transportation officials attempted to make the intersection safer about seven years ago. The improvements didn’t seem to work. Additionally, limousines built in factories are already required to meet stringent safety regulations, but when cars are converted into limos, safety features are sometimes removed, leading to gaps in safety protocols.

During special occasions (wedding, debut, birthday, graduation, etc.), a luxury vehicle limousine is never less attractive to those who can afford. It’s a dream of many to have luxurious celebration, not to be bothered about ‘menial chores’ but just enjoy each moment. If one can afford it, why not? Anyone has the right to spend the fruit of his/her labor. One can have a reckless lifestyle. Another can have prudent lifestyle. All will return to dust eventually. But be sure of this: Hebrews 9:27, 27Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.

So, how can Christians enjoy life and still live a lifestyle acceptable to God? Do not be deceived to think that Christ-like lifestyle is boring or unpleasant. Galatians 5:22-23 teaches otherwise, But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

This world offers temporary happiness and expensive. Limited finances cannot assure much happiness, and may even cause worry or depression. In contrast, Christ’s Spirit produces joy. It’s free! Rich or poor, great or small can have it. Let Christ be the Lord and Master of your life to have joy, peace, self-control immensely.

 Lord Jesus, may tragic accidents remind us of Judgment Day.
