Things 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

God won't ask the square
footage of your house. He'll ask how many people you welcomed into your

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 to whom you were a friend.

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 why it took you
so long to seek Salvation. He'll lovingly take you to your mansion in
heaven, and not to the gates of Hell.

Isn't God great?!
