Thought for today – 02/10/2011

Smart players are clear on what lasts and what doesn’t. So Jesus says it is wise to store up treasure in what’s eternal: God and people (see Matthew 6:19-21). This is Motel 6. Your “room” — your home and furniture and clothes and possessions — will last the equivalent of a few seconds compared to the eternity that will be occupied by your soul. It’s not bad to stay in a place and enjoy it while you’re there. But Jesus says don’t store up treasure in Motel 6. It’s not home. You’re only going to be here a little while. If you’re going to stay up nights dreaming, dream about something better than how to upgrade your motel room.”
~John Ortberg, When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box
