He was a very rich man. When he died suddenly, the question was asked, ‘How much did he leave?’ Of course the answer was ‘everything.’ He couldn’t take his wealth into the next world.
Therefore we need to take note of the words of Jesus, ‘Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is there your heart will be also.’ Matthew 6:19
