I read this simple yet relevant mediation. I do not know the original author.
A reminder that we are but dust and our destiny is eternity.
Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect. Many Parts in One Body. (Romans 12:2)
The Human Body After Death:-
3 Days after death, finger nails begin to fall;
4 Days after death, hairs breaks out of the skull and all body hairs fall;
5 Days after death, the brain starts to sag, the flesh fades, the buttock, breast and genitals will decay (those things that normally drives you into sin; hmmm)
6 Days after death, the skin begins to noircir and gradually detach from the bones;
7 Days after death, the belly melts and radiates a strong odour beginning with a gaping mouth and a genital organ appealing the marauders;
60 Days after death, the whole human body is reduced to nothing bones;
Why too much pride?
Why too much selfishness?
Why too much hate?
Why too much jealousy?
Why too much evil deeds?
Man is a dust and must surely go back to the dust to help the land to be fertile.
Do you think that you are the owner of yourself?
Why not humble yourself?
Why not love your neighbors?
Stop those selfish acts?
You are only living by God’s Grace!
JMJ, pray for us!
God is good,
