We work ourselves to death trying to accumulate wealth for our children to hedge their future against all kinds of uncertainties in life.
We buy all kinds of insurances to ensure the future welfare of our loved ones.
We send our children to the best schools that our meager resources could afford just so we can ensure their future prosperity.
There are times we even sacrificed our scrupples and throw our principled integrity to the waste bin just to accumulate the much sought after wealth to ensure the future of our loved ones.
We worry ourselves to death regarding the future of our children, how they will fare in this jungle of existence where the norm is survival of the fittest and dog eats dog.
We do all these things and so much more, but there is one basic and fundamental question we refuse to even entertain in our minds. The question is:
HAVE WE PREPARED OUR CHILDREN FOR ETERNITY? Think about that.
