Often, we hear of “estate sales.” Everything is for sale, including furniture, china, toys, tools and much more. They represent a lifetime of “stuff.” A person who stopped at one recently wondered what had happened. Was it financial loss, moving away, divorce, or death? “Timothy, writing in the New Testament, reminded us, “… we brought nothing into the world, and neither can we carry anything out.” Jesus asked rhetorically, “What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul?” How important it is to keep our priorities right. This life is temporal and preparation for eternity is much more important than earthly possessions. The prophet Amos gave us all wise advice, when he urged, “prepare to meet your God.” That happens only when we have Christ in our lives.
