TRUE VALUE! – Luke 12:15 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Luke 12:15 – Devotional

Luke 12:15

“Then He said to them, ‘Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.’

There once was a man in my congregation who owned an extensive gun collection. I am not that much of a gun nut, but it was an amazing sight to view such a collection worth several thousand dollars.

One day word came that Wayne’s home had been burglarized. As you might guess, the only items stolen were the guns that he had collected over many years and with such careful attention to detail.

Driving to his home, I wondered what his response would be to this loss and was prepared to console him. Quite frankly, I expected Wayne to be angry with the intruders.

Surprisingly, the robbery victim greeted me at the door with a huge smile and a hearty laugh—he had not held onto this valuable collection as being the most important thing in his life. Even when I asked if the guns were insured, he just grinned. No, they were not insured and there was no way that he would be compensated for the loss. But Wayne did not mourn the loss of such valuable items. His true treasure was laid up in heaven and was waiting for him there.

Several years later, after we had moved to an other church and he and his wife moved across the state, we heard that Wayne had died. I could just imagine him seeing the true worth of those eternal things that this world can never value. I can hardly wait to see him some day and rejoice with him in the true value of eternal life with our Lord!

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing!
