What most people forget is that no part of this life, and nothing whatsoever that they have in this life, is theirs to begin with. Someone gave it all to them. God Almighty: that is who gave it to them. And he did so free of charge.
So, if people today take a few moments from that life that God gave them and return those few moments to the original owner in the form of service to God and his creation, they want appreciation for that? Or they want what the Brits would call a Vote of Thanks? Or they want a statue set up in their honor to commemorate their kindness and generosity?
I don’t get it. I can be very generous too with someone else’s money.
