Thought for the Day: Possessions that possess

A yuppie was opening the door of his BMW when a car came along and hit the door, ripping it off completely. When the police arrived at the scene, the yuppie complained bitterly about the damage to his car.

"Officer, look what they've done to my Beemer!"

"You yuppies are so materialistic, it's ridiculous," retorted the officer.

"You're so worried about your stupid BMW, you didn't even notice that your arm has been ripped off."

"Oh, no!!!" screamed the yuppie, noticing the bloody stump where his arm used to be. "My Rolex!"

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin 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
