Living for Eternity’s Values in View June 6, 2018

Peggy and David Rockefeller’s lavish artworks and other treasures recently set a new world record of eight hundred and thirty-two million dollars for a single collection at Christie’s auction. That is an impressive amount of money, but they left it all behind. It was King Solomon of old who said, “I gathered for myself silver and gold and the treasure of kings…whatever my eyes desired. I did not keep from them…and behold all is vanity.” The Lord Jesus spoke of an entirely different attitude toward earthly possessions when He said, “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth… but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven…For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” In other words, live with eternity’s values in view. Amos of Old Testament fame wrote, “Prepare to meet your God.”
