Born Naked And Die Naked

Born naked and die naked. It’s the lot of every human creature. All of us, 100 out 100!

What does billionaire Manny Villar and Tondo squatter dweller Pedro have in common?

Both were born naked. Both will die naked.
     
All of life, the world forces us the illusion to focus on externals for your “net worth.”

Such as, money or bank accounts, cars, houses, businesses, and other possessions and relationships.
   
Yet when you apply them to the stretch of life – youth, aging, illness, death, and world beyond – leaves us absolutely nothing.
     
We actually own nothing. We don’t even own our body and life.

“We all come to the end of our lives as naked and empty-handed as on the day we were born. We can’t take our riches with us,” as Ecclesiastes 5:15 put it.
     
So be careful how you define your worth or identity while walking the earth.
     
It’s dangerous to locate your happiness, worth or identity in vulnerable externals.

In my clinical practice as a psychotherapist, much of psychopathology lies in this area.

People lose themselves when they put their absolute happiness or worth on things that are innately fragile and impermanent.

Remember Michael Jackson? He died at only 50. Before he died, he wanted to live till 150.

He hired 12 doctors at home to daily examine and maintain his health from head to toenails.

Alas! He failed due to his addictions. He left earth prematurely, leaving millions of dollars and properties behind.

I also remember one European billionaire who took his life when he got bankrupt and abandoned by his family.

His mind played tricks on him that made him lose hope and sense of worth.
   
Your true, lasting worth and identity is only in God.

Then the temporary possessions entrusted to you takes on a larger meaning based on God’s purpose for your life.
     
Born naked and die naked. Live with purpose, in-between. 

   “Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his ancestors and his body decayed.” (Acts 13:36)

“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:21)
