The recent story in the Lodi News-Sentinel, “So you want to own a tank,” July 11, regarding 80 military tanks that were collected by Jacques Littlefield and that are scheduled to be sold at auction for a potential $10 million, really set me to thinking!
Why would anyone have invested such a sum in World War II relics when those same funds could have meant the difference between life and death for untold numbers of people suffering with various diseases and physical maladies all over the world? Or it could have fed thousands of starving people.
What will Mr. Littlefield say to Jesus who asked, “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?” (Mark 8:36). Perhaps it’s something we’d all be wise to consider!
