Notice that the title of this blog is not how much can you love G-d or someone…
Those can be virtually infinite.
I remember my dad was so devoted to G-d and his family.
He used to say:
“I would go through fire for my family [and of course G-d].”
And we all knew from his daily actions that he meant it!
But how about for things–how much do some people love their things?
I read today in the Wall Street Journal how David Rockefeller’s estate of paintings, porcelain, and silver was slated to sell for $700 million!
That’s a lot of prized possessions of [lovely] material things!
But even things that aren’t so pricey are incredibly beloved to many people.
In these photos, someone who must really love bowling has adorned their home and property with dozens of bowling bowls.
Literally on the fence and in big piles as decoration in the yard all around the home.
True, it’s colorful, novel, and sort of interesting, but really you love bowling that much!
Yes, we are want to be comfortable with our special things especially when they provide good memories and sentimental feelings.
But whether a bowling bowl house or a Rockefeller estate, it’s only truly worth something if there is G-d and loving people in it with you. 😉
