Remembering King Tut!
This week is Spring Break for our county schools, so we took the opportunity as a family to take in a fun but educational field trip. King Tutankhamen and the Pharaohs of Egypt touring Museum is in Atlanta, so off we went. Not every artifact is in Atlanta, but what we saw was truly amazing. To think that many of the statues and jewelry displayed were thousands of years old and are representative of the splendor that Joseph and Moses would live with. What a world they knew. These artifacts helped me understand why Joseph's brothers did not know him. These artifacts helped me understand the "sacrifice" Moses made when he considered Egypt's pleasures temporary and followed after God, choosing to suffer over being quite comfortable.
Therein lies the simple application for a very short blog this morning. Just one thought; a simple question for each of us during a tough economy in a land that is still a land of plenty. Which is greater, the things that are seen and transient of those that are unseen and eternal (2 Cor 4:16ff)?
