The Problem With Sand Castles

Have you ever watched children making sand castles? They laugh and play and have a great time and at the end of the day the ocean comes in and takes it all back. Really it's not so different from real life. We work and we build and we admire our little Kingdoms and in the end time comes in and takes it all back. In the Book of Matthew the Bible asks a very important question. What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? What are you building? Don't store up treasures here on the earth they will only wash away. Store up your treasure in heaven. What kind of treasure? Kind acts towards others. People you have won to Christ. The difference you have made in peoples lives. The example you leave behind for your children. Many of the things we do and invest in are all so temporary. Turns out the most important things in life, are not things at all. Think about it. The waves of time are getting closer everyday.
