"You will die the way you lived"

Posted by   + Show Post

Paul Walker (the actor from the 'Fast and the Furious'
movies) passed away earlier today and this was the state
of the car that he died in.
There are some lessons we can learn from his death. One
of the main lessons is that you will die the way you lived
your life. So if you live your life in the fast lane, you will
also die in the fast lane. If you live your life by the gun
you will also die by the gun. If you live a righteous life,
Allah Azzawajal will in His infinite Mercy give you a
righteous death.
Many people think these celebrities are untouchable but
the reality is different. I bet he was looking forward to the
release of his new 'Fast and the Furious' film next year,
without thinking he may be dead by then. Most of us do
the same thing, we think about the future and ignore the
fact that we may pass away before our plans become a
reality.
Only Allah Azzawajal knows how long we have left in this
world. Many of us may not be alive next week and that is
the honest truth. So make the most of every minute you
have in this world and do as much as you can for your
Akhirah because as you can see from the picture, all it
takes is a wrong move of the steering wheel and you are
gone.

A true lesson in the saddness. Money and fame can NOT protect you.

Why assume he thought money and fame would protect him? This post is insensitive. They haven't even confirmed who was driving the car.

Pretty sure he had plenty of time to tell the driver to slow down.

He was in the passenger seat.

So just because he tells the driver to slow down means he will? Yeah...

Paul Walker was a christian. He did live his life for God. Not understanding the op.


Quoting Anonymous:

So, all those people who live a righteous life, they never die like this? They always die a "righteous" death? And all people who die in car wreck, or get shot or whatever, none of them live their lives for God? That part makes no sense. I do agree with you that we never know how long we have left and should live every day like it's our last though.

What about all those people who are victims of random acts of violence?   This post is stupid.

He was at a charity event. He died, at a charity event. He made the fatal error of getting into a car with someone that ( obviously) pushed the limits, and lost. Some folks are thrill seekers, and yes, that can be dangerous. But to say he lived recklessly because of the way he died, I feel, in this case in particular, is unfair. 

The only lesson to be learned is that we are ALL mortal.
