Why Not Survival First?


The road is long (reminds me of a song), much longer than a marathon.

Endurance is the key.  

Difficult to lose brothers and sisters, friends and neighbors along the way.  

Will they reside in our memories?  

Will they still have a place in our hearts? 

These should be easy answers, but I wonder....


When polled over 50 percent say they are concerned about COVID-19. 

Why not 100 percent? 

The assumption that all people would care about their own survival of family and friends and that of human race is not accurate, at least according to the polls.   

You can say a small majority care (enough to win a vote), but not a large majority (enough to gain salvation).

How disconcerting should we be at the lost of humanity? 

The safety and well-being of people should be first and foremost in our priority, because obviously our mutual survival depends upon it.  

What come after nonsurvival, death and destruction or after the human race, matters only to the non human race.  

If someone does not survive, what need would the dead have for money or power or learning?  (It is not like he or she can take it with them when dead.)

Why don't we make sure we survive first? 

What will happen if we don't survive after? 

It is up to the Lord. 

Before that, it is up to us.
