Think Before Suicide

Posted on

How often we contemplate suicide?
Feeling worthless, hopeless, helpless, angry, and depressed
Living in an urban society?

Standing on the rooftop pondering
Closing all door and window with gas
Gulping down plentiful sleeping pills
Slitting wrist with the sharp kitchen knife
Jumping onto the train tracks

Will suicide end your suffering?
Suicide marks the beginning of enormous sufferings
Torments of numerous endless suffering

Will suicide solve all problems?
Problems of debt, relationship, career, love.
NO! IT WON’T! DON’T COMMIT SUICIDE!

Suicide indicates running from problems
Suicide indicates immaturity and brings tears to
Someone who love you dearly

Imagine yourself in their shoes
How will you feel to lose them?
Will sadness grip your heart?

Why can’t we be responsible?
Responsible with our own lives to live
Our life to the fullest
Searching who is the Source of Life.

Do you see a Light
In your darkest path of your life?
Dash towards the brightest Light.

Japanese Movie “Nada Sô Sô” (2006)

Posted on

Yotaro lived sacrificially for his sister’s sake in order to keep his promise to his beloved mum before her deathbed, but he also work hard to earn income to fulfil his dream to open a restaurant.

On the day to open his dream restaurant, suddenly the real land owner appeared. Then he realized that Mr. Kameoka was a swindler. This ended him with a big debt to settle. His dream was dashed.

This shows he is a gentleman, responsible, honours his words, respectful, honest, and a hardworking man.

For the sake of paying his debts, he worked hard day and night until he lost his health. Despite his fever, for the sake of protecting his sister during typhoon, he ignored it and went to her rescue and lose his life at the age of 25.

This is indeed a love in action.

Suddenly, James Chapter 2 verse 17 to 20 came to my mind, “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

The first book of Corinthians Chapter 13 verse 4 to 7 speaks about love, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

My mind starts to wonder,
Is this what a disciple of Christ supposed to do?

James 2:17-20 “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

So the moral of the story is love in action.
