Well, I do want a nice car. But in the end, if I was the richest man in the world and Chirst asked me to let go of everything I owned for Him, I would do it in a heartbeat!
I think that is the whole point. Remember, you can't take it with you!! ;)
Reminds me of a joke I heard once about a man who lived a virtuous life, loved God, and passed away in a state of grace. However, he had a chunk of gold about the size of a softball in his possession that he prized above most things. When he stood before God he asked if he could bring in one thing, because it meant so much to him. After much begging and pleading God allowed it, but demanded to see what it was that was causing him so much grief to leave behind.
He showed God his chunk of gold and God erupted into laughter. The man was infuriated that the creator of the universe was laughing at his most prized possesion. "Why are you laughing! What is up with that?!?!"
God just said (whiping a tear from his eye) "Son, come on in, I just don't understand why it was so important to you to bring asphalt!"
