Not what we HAVE or what we KNOW, but what we ARE!
We must strive to realize every longing for holiness and Christlikeness, which our hearts seek. Remember that it is character alone, which is the test of true living.
It is not knowledge; for knowledge will fail.
It is not money; for money cannot be taken into the eternal world.
It is not fame; for fame's laurels fade at the grave's edge.
It is not culture, or education, or refinement either.
It is our character alone — not what we HAVE or what we KNOW, but what we ARE — which we can carry with us into the eternal world.
"He who is unjust — let him be unjust still;
he who is filthy — let him be filthy still;
he who is righteous — let him be righteous still;
he who is holy — let him be holy still."
