The greatest tragedy in life is not death but life without a purpose as echoed by a destiny shaper – (Myles Munroe). He observes that the best discovery in life is self-discovery.  While those you have touched with your immeasurable potentials wished death was not this cruel to you, we take solace in the fact that you are not a victim of the greatest tragedy.

The world today is engulfed and obsessed with work, profession, sex, transgender, religion, relationships, alcoholism, among others. It is sardonic that many are not pursuing what they are called for. It is disheartening that countless have relegated the discovery of their selves to the background. It is worrisome to see them existing rather than living.

Like you said those that belong to the former category are not living for anything. They are yet to discover their selves. That is, they do not know why they were created, what they were created to do and for who. While the latter are those that are living their purpose.

It is against this background that the late sage was born. For me, Myles Munroe was born to liberate men and women from the shackle of ignorance and purposeless life. As somebody that knew his purpose, he was very time-conscious as he did not waste since he had a premonition that he had a short time left for his voyage to eternal abode. He believes that only those that are clueless about their purpose waste time.

For him, the value of life is not in its duration but in its donations. According to him, you are not important because of how long you live, you are important because of how effective you are. Unfortunately, most people are concerned about growing old rather being effective.

Sir, even though you did not live very long, I can say that you have donated your all to the world. You have lived an effective and efficient life. May God bless your soul. You have always told us that the wealthiest place on earth is not in Paris, London, America but the graveyard. It is the place where innovations were never invented, beautiful songs were unsung, good books were never written, problems were not solved. As such, you admonished us not to add to the wealth of the grave by dying empty. I am grateful to God that you robbed the grave as you did not add to its wealth. Indeed, you died empty. You died three years but we believe you are still with us.

Good night Dr. Myles Munroe.
