Heaven can’t be bought – Tomorrow’s reading reflection

“For we brought nothing into the world, just as we shall not be able to take anything out of it.”

We can’t take it with us, and we can’t buy our way to heaven. We need to do good works because it’s the right thing to do, not because we expect to be handsomely paid for them with money, affirmation or fame.  None of those things can buy you love.  Nor will they buy you God.  And anyone who tells you otherwise isn’t telling you the truth.  St. Paul says to us all when he says to St. Timothy, “But you, man of God, avoid all this.”
