Alexander the Great

Just before he died, Alexander convened his generals and told them his last three wishes:

1. That his coffin should be carried on the shoulders and transported by the best doctors of the time.

2. That the treasures he had conquered (silver, gold, precious stones) should be scattered on the path to the grave site and …

3. That his hands should be dangling in the air, outside of the coffin and in view of all.

One of his generals, astonished by these quite unusual desires, asked Alexander about his reasons. Alexander explained to him:

1. I want the most eminent doctors from the land to bear the load of my coffin to show that they did not have the power to heal in the face of death.

2. I want the ground to be covered by my treasures for all to see that material goods conquered here, cannot be taken and so, must remain here.

3. I want my hands to be swaying in the wind, so that people can see that just as we came here with empty hands, we leave too with empty hands.

With these words, the king closed his eyes. Soon he let death conquer him and breathed his last.

Tithe Your Time

When dying you can take no material with you.
Time is the most precious treasure that we have because it is limited.
We can produce more money, but not more time …
When we dedicate time to a person or a cause, we are giving the person / it a portion of our life that we can never recover …
Our time is our life.

The best gift you can give someone is your Time and always give it to God first; and to your family or a good friend.
The CSF could do with your time that would be put to use in the LORD’s vineyard, as we strive to make HIS Kingdom come.

Or at least take the time to send this message to your family and friends
