Ps 39:6 We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing. We heap up wealth, not knowing who will spend it.
Many are so busy securing their life on earth that they never prepare for what comes after. King David enjoyed a rich life but realized that no matter how much he accomplished here on earth it would never make a difference in eternity. Unfortunately, few understand that death is not the end.
Many rush to do so much but never feel they accomplish anything. The more we do the less happy we are. The key is to slow down. Sit back and enjoy what you have with family and friends alike. Don’t get me wrong, saving for a “rainy day” is good, but how much do we need to leave behind. Will those who enjoy the fruits of our labor appreciate it or squander it.
Spending more time, and yes, sometimes money, with family now is not only important but is an investment in their future. What will they remember? The time we spent together or the lack of attention?
