“You know that being meant for more means so much more than filling your life with mere matter, with material things, with stuff and possessions and power and pleasures and treasures. No. It means investing in those things that really matter, those things that last, like relationships and integrity and the personal touch and faith. It means valuing others because we never know when the next moment might be the last moment.”
