Possessions In A Suitcase

A man died, when he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.

God: Alright son its time to go.
Man: Now? So soon? I had a lot of plans…
God: I’m sorry but its time to go.
Man: What do you have in that suitcase? the man asked.
God: Your belongings.
Man: My belongings? you mean my things, my clothes, my money?
God: Those things were not yours they belonged to the earth.
Man: Is it my memories? the man asked.
God: those never belonged to you they belonged to Time
Man: Is it my talents?
God: Those were never yours they belonged to the circumstances.
Man: Is it my friends and family?
God: I’m sorry they were never yours they belonged to the path.
Man: Is it my wife and son?
God: They were never yours…they belonged to your heart.
Man: Is it my body?
God: That was never yours it belonged to the dust.
Man: Is it my soul?
God: No that is mine.

Full of fear, the man took the suitcase from God and opened it just to find out the suitcase was empty.

Man: With a tear coming down his cheek the man said: I never had anything?
God: That is correct, every moment you lived were only yours. Life is just a moment; a moment that belongs to you. For this reason enjoy this time while you have it. Don’t let anything that you think you own stop you from doing so.

Live now. Live your life. Don’t forget to be happy, that is the only thing that matters.
Material things and everything else that you fought for stay here….you can’t take anything. All your material things and possessions stay here on earth, but you have something far better in Heaven.
