ON HIS DEATH BED

The last wishes of Alexander the Great........
 On his death bed, Alexander summoned his army generals and
told them his three ultimate wishes:
 
1.    The best doctors should carry his coffin ..
 
2.    The wealth he had accumulated (money, gold, precious stones)
should be scattered along the procession to the cemetery ....
 
3.     His hands should be let loose, so they hang outside the coffin for
all to see !!

One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual requests

asked Alexander to explain.
 
Here is what Alexander the Great had to say:
 
1.   “ I want the best doctors to carry my coffin to demonstrate that
in the face of death, even the best doctors in the world have no
power to heal ."
 
2.   "I want the road to be covered with my treasure so that
everybody sees that material wealth acquired on earth, will stay
on earth.."
 
3.  “ I want my hands to swing in the wind, so that people
understand that we come to this world empty handed and we
leave this world empty handed after the most precious treasure
of all is exhausted, and that is: TIME.”
 
We do not take to our grave any material wealth. TIME is our mostprecious treasure because it is LIMITED. We can produce more
wealth, but we cannot produce more time.
 
When we give someone our time, we actually give a portion of our life
that we will never take back . Our time is our life !
 
The best present that you can give to your family and friends is your
TIME.  M
ay God grant YOU plenty of TIME, to share with all.
