Most people spend their life seeking & gaining wealth. If you don’t have it, you want it. If you have it, you want more.
The focus is on increasing wealth.
Yet, you can’t take it with you when you die. So what’s the point?!
Jesus said in Luke 16:9,
“I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.”
When all is said and done, what wealth you have gained you ‘will’ to others for them to then use as they wish.
Sure, leave a legacy, but why wait until you are dead?
Who can benefit from your generous love, a gift, financial help, or encouragement right now?
I have been a recipient of such overwhelming generosity, not from blood family, but men who gave to me of their wealth to restore HOPE when I most needed it, yet did not deserve it or asked for it.
In all cases, these men remain life long friends to this day and have inspired me to do as they have done.
