You can take it with you

There once was a rich man who was
near death. He was very grieved
because he had worked so hard for his
money and wanted to be able to take it
with him to heaven. So he began to
pray that he might be able to take
some of his wealth with him.
An angel heard his plea and appeared
to him. "Sorry, but you can't take your
wealth with you."
The man begged the angel to speak to
God to see if He might bend the rules.
The man continued to pray that his
wealth could follow him.
The angel reappeared and informed
the man that God had decided to allow
him to take one suitcase with him.
Overjoyed, the man gathered his
largest suitcase and filled it with pure
gold bars and placed it beside his bed.
Soon afterward, he died and showed
up at the gates of heaven to greet St.
St. Peter, seeing the suitcase, said,
"Hold on, you can't bring that in here!"
The man explained to St. Peter that he
had permission and asked him to verify
his story with the Lord.
Sure enough, St. Peter checked it out,
came back and said, "You're right. You
are allowed one carry-on bag, but I'm
supposed to check its contents before
letting it through."
St. Peter opened the suitcase to
inspect the worldly items that the man
found too precious to leave behind and
exclaimed, "You brought pavement?"
"The great street of the city of heaven
was of pure gold."
But when his wealth was assessed by the road to heaven, sure because he was a rich man of kindness, and he must to teach kindness to others , His treasure its equal to the road leading to heaven, and to richman of kindness impossible when without effort, minimal did kindness to ownself and to others. Nice the story

Raj's sick now so he in resting .. So I pray he will quick healthy as before, amien.. The story tells about a rich man who is now dead, I dont understand the meaning rich of this story, rich in treasures? Or rich in faith ?.. but if rich faith, why the angel refused when he wanted to take it ? Rich treasure? But God does not need our treasures.
