God won't ask

 

 

 

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 about your social status;
He will ask what kind of class you displayed.

God won't ask how many material possessions you had;
He'll ask if they dictated your life.

God won't ask what your highest salary was;
He'll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.

God won't ask how much overtime you worked;
He'll ask if your overtime work was for yourself or for your family.

God won't ask how many promotions you received;
He'll ask how you promoted others.

God won't ask what your job title was;
He'll ask if you performed that job to the best of your ability.

God won't ask what you did to help yourself;
He'll ask what you did to help others.

God won't ask how many friends you had;
He'll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.

God won't ask what you did to protect your rights;
He'll ask what you did to protect the rights of others.

God won't ask in what neighborhood you lived;
He'll ask how you treated your neighbors.

God won't ask about the color of your skin;
He'll ask about the content of your character.

God won't ask how many times your deeds matched your words;
He'll ask how many times they didn't.


It's not what you gather,
but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.
