Who Gets Your Stuff?

He must leave all he owns to
someone who has not worked for it.
             —Ecclesiastes 2:21

It won’t be long until everything that now belongs to you will belong to someone else.

When God faced off with a man whose life was absorbed in beefing up his assets he said, “You fool! Tonight you will die. Then who will get what you have stored up?” (Lk. 12:20).

Eventually a day will dawn with this caption: “This is the day you die.” Then, this question: “Who gets your stuff?”

That question haunted Solomon. He knew that one day he would leave everything he’d worked for to an heir—“And who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool?” he fretted.

It’s yours for a while. Then who gets it?

The mortality rate is 100%.
