Someone recently sent me an email of things God won’t ask you on Judgment Day:
God won’t ask what kind of car you drove. He’ll ask how many people you drove who didn’t have transportation.
God won’t ask the square footage of your house, He’ll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.
God won’t ask about the clothes you had in your closet. He’ll ask how many you helped to clothe.
God won’t ask what your highest salary was. He’ll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.
God won’t ask what your job title was. He’ll ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.
God won’t ask how many friends you had. He’ll ask how many people you were a friend to.
God won’t ask in what neighborhood you lived, He’ll ask how you treated your neighbors.
I like that list because it emphasizes that investing time in people is the way to redeem the time.
