“It is the folly of most men, to mind and pursue that which is for the body and for time only, more than that for the soul and eternity.” Matthew Henry

Luke 12:13-21

Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator over you?” And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” 

And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man produced plentifully, and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 

And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.”’ 

But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”

“I seek a place that can never be destroyed, one that is pure, and that fadeth not away, and it is laid up in heaven, and safe there, to be given, at the time appointed,
to them that seek it with all their heart. Read it so, if you will, in my book.”

Keep an eye out on Ebay.

This is a fun and instructive game, walking you through the story of Pilgrim’s Progress, with similar hinderances and blessings as Christian went through on his journey to the Celestial City.

Then said Apollyon, I am sure of thee now: and with that he had almost pressed him to death, so that Christian began to despair of life:

but as God would have it, while Apollyon was fetching of his last blow, thereby to make a full end of this good man, Christian nimbly stretched out his hand for his Sword, and caught it, saying, 

Rejoice not against me, O mine Enemy! when I fall I shall arise; and with that gave him a deadly thrust, which made him give back, as one that had received his mortal wound. 

― John Bunyan, The Pilgrim’s Progress
