The Queen was buried with NOTHING

At the funeral service of late Queen Elizabeth, towards the end of the service, I was touched by the Archbishop’s last words before the body was taken to the grave for burial.

He said: “Now let us remove all symbols of power from the coffin, so that our sister, Elizabeth can be committed to the grave as a simple Christian”.

Immediately, the staff of office was removed, then the scepter, the crown followed and all valuables were removed. The Queen was buried with NOTHING. Notice that the Archbishop did not include “Queen” to her name at this point too.
Life is indeed vanity. It is transient, and that teaches us humility. Humility in power, humility in relating with others, humility in our acquisition of wealth, and humility in all our endeavors, because in the end, we will all go back with NOTHING.

Let it Sink!
Good morning and win forever family of God
