MY PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE
Simply stated my philosophy of life is this.
We are all coming from God and to God we have to return one day.When we are born in this world we have a destructible body and an indestructible soul.The destiny of the indestructible soul depends on what choices we make in this world.If we make good choices our soul will go to heaven and live in everlasting bliss with God and if we make bad choices our soul will burn in eternal hell and suffer for ever.
Of course my belief is mostly based on Christian doctrine and those belonging to other religions may not accept my point of view.In any case I would like to hear them.
This is a comment written by me in May's blog DAY AND NIGHT DEVOTIONS in her post under the heading LOVE NOT THE WORLD.
God has given us this earthly life not to give up everything in this world,not to stop enjoying the worldly pleasures,not to prevent us from having a good time,not to give up the fun and frolic of life but to enjoy our life in the best possible way so that we can derive happiness, satisfaction,peace and joy in this worldly life.
At the same time God wants us to put HIM first and foremost in everything we do and live by HIS commandments. I agree Jesus said WHAT DOES IT PROFIT A MAN IF HE GAINS THE WHOLE WORLD BUT SUFFER THE LOSS OF HIS OWN SOUL.Yes, there is no point in gaining the whole world and lose one's soul to the devil.But gaining the whole world without losing one's soul is an absolutely acceptable thing to God.But whether we can gain the whole world without losing our soul is a different thing altogether and such a thing is not possible in real life.
But what God wants us,I believe is that, we should enjoy our life in this world and also in the next.This does not mean that we should give up all our worldly possessions, give up our earthly desires and not strive for better things in life..We can do everything in moderation,with control and temperance as long as we don't commit a sin. For instance, a person who loves to eat can eat in moderation,but not overeat because it leads to the sin of gluttony.If you really look at it,eating in moderation helps the body to be healthy and strong but overeating leads to sickness.
Everything in moderation without hurting others or oneself should be our watch word,guiding star and God will certainly approve our actions
