We all leave this world the same way that we came into it – stark naked and with nothing in our hands. In reality material wealth means absolutely nothing at all. We will be remembered not for what we have, but for whom we have touched in life. Those who live a life of generosity in all that they do may not amass great personal material wealth, but they will leave a lasting footprint on many hearts. Think about how much better our world would be if everyone tried to live a life based on trying to amass greater points of kindness and generosity rather than personal wealth? What if the bumper sticker that is so popular “he who dies with the most toys wins” were changed to “he who dies with the most random acts of kindness wins”? Now that would be a challenge!
