He Was Buried In The Most Expensive Casket The Morgue Offered


There once was a wise man who taught those that were with him that a man’s true worth was not measured in ‘net!’ He mentioned to them about a rich friend of his who had much success in the business world. He had become a millionaire. This friend told him that he thought within himself, “I haven’t earned enough. How can I become a multi-millionaire so that I can retire young and enjoy the good life.” He then spent all his time in pursuit of building his ’empire’ at the expense of all other things in his life. Finally the day arrived when he felt he had earned enough to retire and enjoy the rest of his life in leisure. A big retirement party was held and all seemed well. Unfortunately, shortly after his early retirement at the age of forty, he was involved in a tragic auto accident which resulted in his death. He was buried in the most expensive casket the morgue offered.

“And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, beat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
