It is the work that grows from grace that will be a testimony to how we have lived our lives. For Christians true success is measured in the way we use our assets in service to others this is how we lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven.
This earth is no longer our home, and the closer we get to Christ, the more we realize it, the more we feel its sufferings and imperfections. This is the lesson Jesus teaches us with his comment about setting our hands to the plow, once we do so, we look forward, we do not look back.
All of the gifts we have received from God, all of our talents, abilities and blessings, are given to us that we may put them at the service of our brothers and sisters. This is what it means to sacrifice our lives for one another and to love as Jesus has loved us.
