I once heard a story about the dying wish of a man of God. Despite his godliness, he had a soft spot for his possessions and prayed repeatedly that God would let him bring his things with him until God allowed him one suitcase.
His final day comes and he shows up to the Gates of Heaven where he is stopped by St. Peter who is overcome with curiosity:
“I have to ask,” Peter says, “what did you choose to bring?”
The man slowly opens his suitcase and Peter’s eyes open wide to see a suitcase filled with the most brilliant gold bricks man had ever beheld. Peter’s reaction explains everything:
“Paving Stones!?! You brought Paving Stones!”
