At Life's Close

Bibliotheca Sacra, 137:547:267

At the close of life, the question will not be,

"How much have you gotten?" but "How much have you given?"

Not

"How much have you won?" but "How much have you done?"

Not

"How much have you saved?" but "How much have you sacrificed?"

It will be

"How much have you loved and served," not "How much were you honored?"

Nathan C. Schaeffer
