A Lesson from a Junkyard

This past week I was helping one of the men in our church load scrap metal and take it to a local junkyard. I was amazed at all of the things that I saw at the junkyard. Computer monitors, flattened cars, worn out tires, dented kitchen appliances…Things that we spend our whole life accumulating. What a waste to spend your entire existence for something as temporary as things! The junkyard was a vivid reminder that nothing that we own will last forever. My computer, my car, my furniture will all one day be destroyed. May God help us all to avoid overcrowding our life with things that distract us from from what is eternal!
