Timothy 6:7 (ESV)
or we brought nothing into the world, and[a] we cannot take anything out of the world.
The great pyramids of Egypt have become objects of fascination for many involved in the New Age teching. Some think they were built by aliens from outer space. Others say they are containers of cosmic power. All of them are trying to find the great "secret" of the pyramids. What they are, really, are structures of death, exaggerated tombstones, coffins. The pyramids were made for death. They were built to house a dead body, along with the useless riches of it's rotting corpse.
The pyramid holds an important lesson for our lives, however. All the works of our flesh and self-glorification end in waste, destruction, futility and death. Our accomplishments in the flesh might be grand, exalted, and elaborate -- but they're really just a monument to ourselves that have no life within them. If we want death, let's look to the flesh and all the glories of man -- look to the pyramids. But if we want life, we'll only find it by abandoning the flesh, walking in purity and putting our faith in Jesus, the one who gives us abundant life!
Investments in eternity neither rust nor rot, so let's become wise investors -- investing in the Kingdom!
Dear Lord, help us to be wise investors in this life You have given to each of us. Help us to look toward our eternity in heaven and invest in things that will glorify You. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
