'EMPTY YOU CAME, EMPTY YOU'LL LEAVE' .

"For we brought nothing into this world and it's certain that we can carry nothing out of it" - 1 Timothy 6:7
.
Only if many of us can live with this mentality, we wouldn't have hold a firm grip on life and the things it has to offer.
.
You do not have the power to determine where you're born neither will you have the power to determine where and when you will die. But you have the power to determine where you'll spend your eternity - heaven or hell.
.
Why do you live a life of greed or covetousness? Why hold onto more than what you need in life? Have you forgotten that that you will leave this world with nothing (Job 1:21)?
.
Don't live to gain the world at the expense of your eternity. Don't acquire too much of material things that would shift away your heart from God.
.
When a man lacks the understanding of this scarcely propagated truth, he will love money and pierce himself with many sorrows in acquiring it (1 Tim. 6:10), he will lay much treasure on earth (Matt. 6:19). But unfortunately, his sweat and labor will be used by another man (Eccl. 2:18-19).
.
Brethren, one of the greatest woe in life is to cry as you came into the world and weep in eternity because you failed to seek life. We came into this world crying but you can leave this wretched world rejoicing if you accept Christ (John 3:16).
.
It is good to be rich in life but never let the riches make you wretched before God in eternity. Don't labor for the meat that perishes but labor for that which endures to everlasting life which the Son of Man shall give because Him as the Father God sealed (John 6:27).
.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, will you also leave this sinful world empty without meeting your Savior with one or more souls during this period of your pilgrimage on earth?
.
May we not live a wasted life.
