Treasure – 7 May 2016, Anno Domini
A rich lady dreamed she went to heaven, and saw there a mansion being built.
"Who is that for?" she asked the guide. "For your gardener."
"But he lives in the tiniest cottage on earth, with barely room enough for his family. He might live better if he did not give away so much to the miserable poor folks."
Farther on she saw a tiny cottage being built.
"And who is that for?" she asked.
"That is for you."
"But I live in a MANSION on earth. I would not know how to manage in a tiny cottage like that."
The words she heard in reply were full of meaning.
"The Master Builder is doing His best with the material that is being sent up."
Then she awoke, resolving to lay up treasure in heaven.
The principle appliest to all who are thinking more of the things temporal which are seen than of the tings eternal which are unseen. (2 Cor. 4:12)
