“Naked a man comes from his mother’s womb, and as he comes, so he departs.” Ecclesiastes 5:15

Have you ever heard anyone say, “You can’t take it with you!” when referring to materialistic things? I have listened to countless conversations that examined what people should do when they have great wealth. However, when studying this particular scripture, the concept is not limited to wealth and prosperity. We come into this world with nothing and we return back to the earth with nothing. But here is the point that I am trying to make, whatever it is that we can contribute to mankind and for the up-building of the kingdom of God, we should gladly share it.  If you are one who encourages, then you should encourage every one you come in contact with. If you are anointed to provide financial support to families and organizations in need, then give generously. If you are blessed to have healing gifts to pray for the sick and they recover, then you should pray for people who need it. Whatever it is that you have been blessed with use it to the glory of God while you are yet alive and still here on this earth. You will not be able to take it with you.  So, utilize it to help someone while you are here and leave it here.
