Romans 8:6 For to be [carnally minded] death; but to be spiritually minded life and peace.

The apostle Paul said:
Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

In a sort of way these two verses say the same thing. If you whole focus in life is making money or having possessions then when you die it will be a loss. Have you ever seen a U-haul trailer behind a hearse? Of course not because no one takes it with Him when he goes.

Some people are completely focused on their families. Families are wonderful but without Christ every loss of a family member is a tragedy. When a family is Christ centered there is hope of a reunion even after death.

Everything in this life will pass away some day. Only Jesus is eternal. Invest your time, your thoughts, and your efforts in the right relationship with Him and everything else will take care of itself.
