What Will You Take with You?

Paul said that contentment brings great gain (1 Timothy 6:6), and here is why, “For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content” (1 Timothy 6:7-8).
I have never heard of anyone who at the gate of death wished they had accumulated more. If the Lord blesses you with an abundance, praise the Lord and do good things with it, but let our hearts be content with what we have, even if food and clothing are all we have!
The reason for thinking that way is that we will not carry any of it with us out of this world. Therefore, we should concentrate on those things that make us better on the inside.
