When you die you will carry nothing away

Why do you work so hard on material things, if when you die you won’t take anything with you? There are many who accumulate wealth and become very attached to it, and when you die your body rots, worms eat your flesh and you do not take anything from this world to the next life.

It is evident that the human being is vain in a great way, his thoughts are only set on obtaining wealth, on having everything as much as he can, and they forget that God is in heaven and that one day their lives will come to an end.

There is a biblical verse that teaches us about those who only put their trust in riches and why we should not do that:

For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

Psalm 49:17

This is a psalm from the sons of Korah speaking of the foolishness of rich, poor and common men. In this teaching we can see that the man who has his trust in wealth, but at the end of his life takes nothing, he gets tired of accumulating and in the end another keeps what he has collected for so many years.

Beloved brothers, it is not bad to have riches on earth, but let us not allow the desire to obtain riches to separate us from God, because then it will be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth when we stand before our God judging us and we ask ourselves why we abandoned him Him for material things. God be merciful to us.
