I enjoy watching a TV show called Storage Wars. In this reality show people bid on storage units that have been abandoned after having five minutes to look at them from the doorway. I enjoy watching because many times they find some great treasures worth a lot of money buried in all the other junk.


In one episode a buyer found a safe in the unit that he had won, but when he opened the safe, it was empty. He was complaining about it and was about to toss the safe aside when another man told him that it was not what was in the safe that was valuable but the safe itself. It was worth a lot of money because it was so old. Like in Storage Wars God has has treasure hidden in unlikely places. --Tim Spear, pastor, Brambleton Baptist Church, Roanoke, VA
