In life, there is time for everything, a time to be born and a time to die. Life is nothing but a mystery, every human being rose from the dust and unto the dust shall they return. When someone dear to us dies, the pain is just so unbearable but we just can’t question God. He decides when to give and when to take because He is the owner of our soul, and even the heart of a king is in His hands. Death is inevitable, every soul must taste death on a sacred date known to God alone. Death is a no respecter of age or status, it comes at the due time known to God alone.
According to report from Sahara Reporters, death has taken away another prominent Nigerian, the deceased is identified as Justice Sylvester Nwali Ngwuta of the Supreme Court. From the report gathered, he died this morning while sleeping at his official residence in Abuja. The deceased was born in 1951, and was getting set for his retirement from the Supreme Court on March 30, 2021 upon attainment of 70 years mandatory retirement age before death took him away.
When something happens in life, whether good or bad, there is always a lesson to learn from it. Following the demise of Justice Sylvester Nwali Ngwuta of the Supreme Court, I have learnt five big lessons which I would be sharing with you all. Check them out below;
1) We May Throw The Dice But God Determines How They Would Fall.
2) We Are From Dust And Unto Dust Shall We Return.
3) Nobody Lives Forever.
4) Nobody Rules Forever.
5) Sleeping Is Natural, Waking Up Is Grace.
This is really a sad one, and I pray God tempers justice with mercy on his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed. May God also grant his family the fortitude to bear this great loss. If you are alive and you are reading this, be grateful to God for the gift of life because you are not better or holier than those who have died. Always remember these two statements, those who have died were once like you, and you who is still alive, would be like them someday. It’s inevitable, just try and live a good life.
