 As-Salaam alaikum,
 In Ayat 46 of Surat Kahfi of the Holy Qur'an (18:46), Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, says:--

   "Wealth and children are the embellishment
     of worldly life, and the good things that last
    (al-baqiyat-as-salihat) are greater with your
    Lord and greater in expectation."

Material things are short-lived and temporary...but "good things that last" will remain and endure forever. That is, their reward will continue into the Hereafter, and the Hereafter is far better and everlasting.

 Now, what are "the good things?"  The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, told us what they are in the following Hadith:--

 Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, reported from the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, that he said:- "Make plenty of the 'good things that last' (al-baqitat salihat). It was said: And what are they, O Messenger of Allah?
 
 He said: "TAKBIR (Saying ALLAHU AKBAR), TAHLIL (Saying: LA-ILAHA ILLALLAH), TAHMID (Saying: ALHAMDU-LILLAH), and saying: LA-HAWLA WALAQUWATA ILLA BILLAH."
[Bukhari, Muslim].

 In view of this, it is so important that we keep to these Noble Good Things that last, in our everyday Zikr, when we come to remember Allah Ta'ala, in the mornings and evenings.
