We often hear it said, “You can’t take it with you.” Some folks, while they cannot take their wealth with them, continue to produce them for those left behind.

They are making boatloads of money, but none of it is doing them any good where they are now.

Matthew 6:19-20 (NIV) "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. (20) But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.”
