S itting by a loved one’s death bed for a month, as I recently did, helps to separate what is and what is not important in life. You come to know from a place deep within what the Apostle Paul said in Philippians 3:8 (Amplified Bible). Paul said, “I count everything as loss compared to the possession of the priceless privilege (the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage) of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord and of progressively becoming more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him (of perceiving and recognizing and understanding Him more fully and clearly). For His sake I have lost everything and consider it all to be mere rubbish (refuse, dregs), in order that I may win (gain) Christ (the Anointed One).”
At the end of the day, when everything’s been said and done, all of our material possessions are not what’s important. All the worldly ideas and all that the world has to offer is not what matters. When we reach our end, all that will matter is the question, “Am I prepared to meet with God?”
