RIP Mr Jobs

Steve Jobs, een van die stigters van Apple, is gisteraand oorlede aan kanker op die ouderdom van 56. Of jy hou van Apple produkte of nie, die impak wat hy gehad het op die tegnologie arena is massief – omtrent elke persoonlike elektroniese produk in jou besit het tot ‘n mindere of meerdere mate ‘n ontwerpselement by Apple geleën. Jobs het ‘n maatskappy in die moeilikheid gelei na een van die mees waardevolle handelsname te wereld.

Hier is van Jobs se woorde (tydens ‘n baie bekende toespraak by Stanford) aangaande die einde van ‘n lewe en die impak wat dit moet hê op jou dag tot dag:

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.”

Die hartseer woorde van iemand wat toe nie die waarheid van Jesus begryp nie.  Hoe kyk mens na die deur ‘n Christen se bril? Lees die brief deur Mike Anderson as gedenk, en vir insig..

“Steve, you were wrong. So wrong. 

Death isn’t natural. It wasn’t meant to be that way. Death is the worst thing that happened, not the best. Paul tells us in Romans 6:23 that death is the result of sin.”
