Think of a nation as a family, where the young and able are doing everyday work, the elderly are enjoying their
retirement, the youngsters are in education.
In age, we can only grow older, and hopefully wiser.
As one generation passes, another takes its place.
Such is life.
The world is God's house.
We are all His children.
We can all do some studies, some work, eat, drink, make merry and so on.
There is nothing we can gather and take up to God.
God gives all to us, He does not expect any of us to carry anything up to Him.
But He will see our deeds as we do them on Earth.
Be thy brothers keeper, it says in the Good Book.
As we live by His words, He will look after us.
