When the Game is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box – John Ortberg

I read this book earlier this year and it quickly became one of my favorite books of all time.  Ortberg captures the meaning of life when he compares our life to a game of monopoly.  As we journey through life, the focus often tends to be on how much money we make, what position we can attain and the comfort that we’ll enjoy in retirement.  But when we die, the game of life is over, and it all goes back in the box.  As the back cover of the book asks, “What did you win that you get to keep?”  That is the question.  What is it that we’ve accomplished, earned or made that we’ll get to keep?  What will last beyond today and tomorrow?
