Most likely, Sam died from overexertion. On another level, you may ask, "Did he die running a business?" Does that mean business is bad? Of course not. Did Sam die of wanting to make it big in life as he saw it? Does this mean that progress is wrong? Surely not.
I'm reminded of noted historian/author, Leo Tolstoy. His life was a demonstration of the reality of human limitation. When he exceeded this limit, it took a toll on his health.
The problem is not with running, having progress, moving forward, bearing a load. Actually, we need burdens to make life more exciting! The problem is not with the carrying of our business or burdens. The problem is to accept when it's over, to leave enough margin for our lives.
We humans are not infinite. No one among us have more than 24 hours a day. Everything on earth has limits. All of us are bound by this sameness of limits.
Now I'm not saying we don't do our best. Instead, I'm only reminding us that there is such a thing as a built-in "threshold" of limits in each one of us.
God must have a reason for giving this "threshold" of limits. How about reflecting with Him about this matter?
