Dr.Richard Teo Called to The Lord at 40 Yrs.

If you are from Asia, you would have read about the story of Dr.Richard Teo a cosmetic multi millionaire surgeon who contracted lung cancer about a year ago and just passed away on 18th Oct 2012.

His story is inspirational and really wake many of us up especially how we place our priorities in life.  Our lives is not just about pursuing wealth, but more importantly following and living out the commands of God.  Jesus said if you gain the whole world what is that to you?  In Dr.Teo's case and many others you may have plenty of wealth, but no health,worse still dead at 40 years!  Some one said we live ironic lives, we pursue wealth when young, but when we get old we use all our wealth to retain our health.  The point is we need a balance of wealth and health.  I believe it is far more important to trust in God in all we do.  He said He will provide if you trust in Him.

The following verses are instructive:

1 Timothy 6:17-19 “Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.”

1 Timothy 6:6 “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”
