"Sikhs shouldn't say stuff like that"

I was having a conversation with someone the other day, and at one point I said that on average women tend to live longer than men. When I said that, a fellow Sikh standing nearby told me that I shouldn't say stuff like that because everything happens according to Guru Ji's hukam. I understand where he was coming from, but was what I said really wrong?

You were simply making an observation about an average, not saying anything egotistical or against Gurmat. You did nothing wrong, but this man's comment made you conscious of your words. One of Guru Ji's great blessings to us is that he puts us in situations (different for each person) in which we can observe and learn from our own words and actions and thereby work on ourselves to speak and act more consciously.

The Singh would not have said anything to you personally but what he said is true...

Jaman manrnaa hukam hai bhaanai aavai jaaee Birth and death are subject to the Command of the Lord's Will; through His Will we come and go.

Life and death are in God's will...death does not look at age, gender, colour, religion, etc..if death has to come it will come by God's hukam...

God bless us all....
