My human nature immediately thought of all that $88 million could do for the orphans of Russia, and for orphans around the world. But then, I remembered the words of Jesus. Where is my treasure? What is the future of all mankind? What is the future of an $88 million apartment at Central Park in New York? According to 2 Peter 2:10, the future of the apartment as well as all earthly "treasures": cinders, nothingness.
2 Peter 2:10: But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
I had to remind myself: where is my treasure?
