      Everyday things become of little meaning in the face of death.
      In Western culture, many people place great value on possessions and on what one owns. This greedy mentality is embodied in the phrase: “He who dies with the most toys wins.”

      Yet when you die, you can’t take anything with you: Naked a man comes from his mother’s womb, and as he comes, so he departs (Ecclesiastes 5:15). It’s no wonder that, when faced with the immediacy of death, one most easily realizes that everyday things are meaningless in the scope of eternity.

      In Philippians 3:5-6, Paul lists many reasons why he could boast about himself. Yet, he recognizes that they pale in comparison to eternity, which is why he considers them rubbish in order to gain Christ (Philippians 3:9).

      All this “stuff” we chase after will be gone. Therefore, make it your aim to live with eternal purpose and invest in eternal things; to spend all you have on what lasts forever.
