Love Will Last Forever
Another reson God tells
us to make love our top priority is that love is eternal.: These three
things continue forever: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of
these is love."
Love leaves a legacy.
How you treated other people, not your wealth or accomplishments, is
the most enduring impact you leave on earth. As Mother Teresa said,
"It's not what you do, but how much love you put into it that matters,"
Love is the secret of lasting heritage.
I have been at the bedside
of many people in their final moments, when they stand on the edge of
eternity, and I have never heard anyone say, "Bring me my diplomas!
I want to look at them one more time. Show me my awards, my medals,
that gold watch I was given." When life on earth is ending, people
don't surround themselves with objects. What we want around us is people
- people we love and have relationships with.
In our final moments we
all realize that relationships are what life is all about. Wisdom is
learning that truth sooner than later. Don't wait until you're on your
deathbed to figure out that nothing matters more.
