I was reflecting on the funerals of Pope John Paul II - a man of God and Michael Jackson - a man of the world. The simplicity of heaven and the extravagance of the world, the wooden casket versus the golden casket. The legacy that both men left behind, legacy that focuses on God and heaven versus legacy that focuses on men and the world.

What do you want your funeral to be like?
UPDATE: After I finished this blog, we did our night prayers and read the following on Psalm 49 “Be not afraid when one becomes rich, when the wealth of his house increases. For when he dies he will carry nothing away; his wealth will not go down after him.”
