Painting Kept in the Closet – August 23

Last month a Picasso painting was sold for $150,000. What makes this sale so interesting is not simply its value but the fact that this painting was stored in the closet of a homeowner in Maine for 50 years before being sold. Imagine having something of such great worth, that has been made accessible to you, and just leaving it stored away in a closet. It is tragic but on a spiritual level so many people do that with something God has made accessible to them. Salvation is made possible through Jesus Christ, something of infinite value, and so many people do not take advantage of the opportunity made available to them. In the Bible, in 2 Corinthians 6:2 it reads, “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation”.
