Yes. It is true. I just sold the car of my childhood dreams. This is an actual photo I took shortly after I bought it nearly three years ago. It was a beauty, even if I do say so myself. One might think this was a hard decision to make. One might also suggest that the sale of this car would sadden me, but that couldn’t be any further from the truth. Please, allow me to explain.
As a child I thought this was the coolest car on the planet. As an adult, I’ve worked hard, saved the money, and bought it. It was fun to drive and a real attention getter. But now that I’ve owned it, I realize “Meh… it’s just a car.” A car that can be door dinged. A car that can be wrecked. A car that can be gone more quickly than I got it. You see, I am a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ and, as such, I realize the truth about material possessions. They can make us comfortable here on earth, and they can even be fun. There is nothing wrong with owning things… unless you realize that those things might be hindering you from doing God’s work.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. ” Matthew 6:19-21
I will take the money from the sale of the car and do something good with it. Something really good!
Check this BLOG in the coming months to see what we decide to do with it. Thank you Lord for a quick sale! And now, off to do the Lord’s work!
