a bumper sticker


I saw an interesting bumper stick today. I says, “Don’t be fooled by my car, my real treasures are in heaven.”
It reminded me of the fragility of life. I think nowadays people forget about their own mortality. Everyone is always so busy acquiring wealth for retirement, children, luxuries, and fame they forget that one day all of that wealth they have amassed would equate to nothing.
Unless you believe that once you are dead, you’re dead, and thats the end of that. You have to wonder what is the measure of wealth in the next life?
Being a person who knows the faces of poverty quite well. I can assure you that many people in this world, who does not own any wealth and treasures in this life, will surely be the riches people in heaven. :wink:
