Until danger knocks the door….

That family was a very sophisticated rich family. There was no limit to luxury and amenities. Wealth and prosperity abounded. It was always jubilant. Everyone in the family celebrated with joy as a party for friends and relatives. In their lives of forgetting God, the event of that one day became a disaster in the family. When their son was having a liquor party with friends at a nightclub, he was infected with Corona from one of his friends, and he came home as usual, unaware of it.
 
As the days went by, the symptoms of Corona began to show. By then, everyone in the family was infected. Everyone in the family was on the verge of danger in the hospital beds. Only then,  they had the thought of ​​God. They screamed, they cried and cried. In between the head of the family, who was in critical condition died of the severe infection. The family itself was devastated. They forgot the Lord in pleasure and sought the Lord in their suffering.
 
Nowadays, many rejoice in their lust for luxury and live forgetting the Lord. They cross the line with the aim of "having a joyful life" without fear of God.  Thought of the Lord are not in their home until danger knocks on their door.
 
“Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”  (Isaiah 55: 6–7)
 
“Examine your conscience before the Lord judges you; then when that time comes, he will forgive you. Humble yourself before you are punished with sickness. When you have sinned, show repentance. If you make a promise to the Lord, keep it as soon as you can. Don't wait until you are about to die to set things straight. But before you make such a promise, be prepared to keep it. Don't try to test the Lord's patience. Think! Do you want him to be angry with you on the day you die? When you face his judgment, do you want him to turn his back on you? When you have all you want, think what it is like to be hungry, what it is to be poor. Things can change in a single day; the Lord can act very quickly.  (Sirach 18: 20-26)
