and worked hard to provide for his family, however, he didn’t take good care of his health. One day, he suffered from a heart attack and died. Most people would think that because while he was alive he did so many good things, that in death he would go straight to heaven, but the day he died, he found himself in hell! The man could not understand why, and marched up to heaven’s door to ask God why he had been sent to hell! “God, please, I don’t understand, I was a good man, I treated my family well, I supported them, I worked hard, and I did everything right! Why must I go to hell?” God took him to the place where he could see the world below, and the man quickly understood his fate. He watched the world below and saw his father was tired and sad because without his son’s support he was forced to return to work as a gatekeeper to make a living. He saw his beautiful wife was tired and weak for she had to go back to work to support herself and her children. And finally he saw his son, who could no longer afford expensive tuition and had been ridiculed by his classmates. After the man saw all of this, his heart was broken, and at this moment God said to him, “because of your death, your loved ones have fallen on difficult times. They live a life like
Hell, so where do you think you should go?”
So if you love your family, you must begin by loving and taking good care of yourself, because only then are you capable of loving others. Only with good health, can you take care of a good family. Only if you value your health, can you love life, and love what you are doing. Therefore, no matter how difficult it is, or how tired you are, for your family, you should smile and say to yourself, “I need to take care of my health”, because without good health, nothing else matters.
