Most everyone has heard of George Strait. One of his songs, “You’ll Be There”, the chorus contains a lyric that says, ” I ain’t never seen a hearse with a luggage rack.” The first time I heard it it caught me off guard. But it really makes us think about what do we leave behind when we die. We were born in this world with nothing and we leave this world with nothing. The most important thing is knowing where we spend eternity. Our relationship with God is the only thing that will matter when we die. If our relationship with God is right then our desire to have our relationships with our families and friends is right.
“If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.”
