Though He [Christ Jesus] was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor. 2 Corinthians 8:9
All people come into this world empty handed, and that is also the way they will leave. Job writes, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart" (Job 1:21). Saint Paul echoes the same truth: "We brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it" (1 Timothy 6:7). The rich man who had himself buried in his solid gold Cadillac, of course, left it behind.
