What we take with us

1 Corinthians 3:15 (NLT)
... The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames.

- I like the imagery used here to describe how, in the end, only that which is of true value, that which is really founded on Jesus Chirst, will survive.

Someone I knew was dying from Lou Gherig's disease, so he had lots of time to think about what he was facing. One day he remarked, "When we die we don't take anything with us."

A close friend rebutted, "Yes, we do. We do take one very important thing with us."

"What is that?" he asked.

"Our character."
