I drive a Porsche; not one of those fancy 911 air-cooled Prima-Donna’s which the purists will tell you are the only Porsches worth buying. No, I drive a Boxster Convertible with Maroon leather which actually saved Porsche from bankruptcy. I tell you this so you can pre-judge me about my choice of car which is 20 years old, but only has 75,000 miles on the clock…barely run-in!
While looking around for a car to buy with my pension money, it was clear there were many other vehicles for sale with ridiculously low mileages for their years which defied the notion that cars are designed and made for driving.
Why would you buy a superb example of a particular model and simply not use it? You find a treasure and then basically wrap it in cotton wool lest you spoil it in some way and are frightened to expose it to the purpose for which it was intended. I do the weekly shop in my Porsche as it easily takes a trolley load without difficulty. Occasionally I let it get dusty on the outside, showing the cat paws as evidence of our pets climbing up to the soft-top for a warm sleep.
The thing is, in my opinion the value of anything we have is measured by the use we put it to. When Jesus heard this, He said to him, “There is still one thing lacking. Sell all that you own and distribute the money to the poor and you will have treasure in Heaven; then come, follow me. When he heard this, he became sad; for he was very rich.” Luke 18 v 22, 23.
However we have been blessed, with money, abilities, skills or position, make good use of it and use it for good in this coming New Year.
REMEMBER we are now HYBRID!
