I love finding abandoned stuff. Early one morning, among the dilapidated buildings and equipment on an old abandoned farm, I found this antique 1940′s Chrysler Special DeLuxe car.
Whenever I find something abandoned like this old car, I can’t help but wonder about its history and who owned it. Seventy plus years ago, someone bought it and was likely proud of their shiny new car. It was used to drive their family around. How did this once nice car get to be in this condition? How long has it sat here?
Whatever it’s story, these old abandoned things are good reminders of the temporal nature of the shiny things in our lives.
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. Matthew 6:19-20
