People make jokes about how it's hilarious when others say that 'life is short' I mean, when you think about it, it's true. What else have you known that is longer than life? So, that makes it a dumb expression, huh? But when you think about it a little closer, it does make sense. Life seems to pass you by and before you know it, so much has gone by and you may have achieved very little. The same applies to doing good while on earth. You have limited time in which you can do good and have any hope of earning goodwill.
When I see people like Oprah Winfrey, Queen Rania and others doing so much, it makes me think that people like this are on a fast track to heaven. And in my book, that's not a bad path to be headed down.
