In recent news reports by the mainstream media, series of suicides attempts begin to surface as the global financial crisis heavily damages the economy. Chinese Celebrity Roger Kwok in Hong Kong expressed his sentiment towards these incidents and encourages everyone that he has also experienced low points in his life, but if we can model after Nick Vujicic, who is without arms or legs, then we can live on with hope.
Kwok said that so many people are easily giving up on life, yet someone who is handicapped in all fours became successful. Actually, every matter depends upon how you look at it; some people will magnify the problem, while others will treat it as a small piece of dust. Just as Vujicic transformed his misfortune into a source of strength, if everyone can examine the problem closely, actually, these difficulties are a test of life.
A while ago, Kwok has learned of Vujicic’s story. Nick Vujicic, 25 years old, was born with no arms nor legs in Australia, yet through God’s grace and his unyielding efforts he can not only take care of himself but also completed two degrees, one is accounting and the other in financial management. Moreover, Vujicic has traveled to over 12 nations sharing his life testimony. In a gathering of over 100,000 people in India, Vujicic led tens of thousands of people to Christ through the sharing of his life.
When asked if he ever had the thought of committing suicide at his life’s lowest points, Kwok answered that even if it is at lowest points of your life but if you just have faith then everything is possible and nothing cannot be solved.
