On Wednesday, February 12, a sinkhole swallowed up eight cars that were on display at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Among those vehicles was a Corvette that was donated by Kevin and Linda Helmintoller of Tampa, Florida. The couple visited the museum a few days after the sinkhole occurred. Kevin said that their car appeared to be underneath the others at the bottom of the hole. He stated, “It definitely hurts, and I’ve cried. There’s no question I’m definitely upset, but there’s no way to conceive of anything like this.”
It was indeed an unlikely way to lose a valuable possession.
Jesus points out that we shouldn’t get too attached to earthly possessions because they are only temporary. Instead, he teaches, “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.”—Matthew 6:20.
Not to mention sinkholes.
