STOP AND THINK – What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal. (Albert Pike, 19th century Confederate officer, attorney)
You Can’t Take It with You was the popular 1937 Pulitzer Prize-winning atoledo play, whose title boldly states an obvious fact of life. Possessions, awards, estates are all left behind when we die. But, the unselfish life, lived for the benefit of others leaves a legacy that blesses others and provides a long-lasting heritage. Such a life also lays up treasures for life after death.
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal (Matthew 6:20)
