John Ortberg (author, speaker, minister) was talking about life and comparing it to a game of Monopoly. He suggests that in life just like the game, we can become consumed by the drive to buy every property that we land on, put up houses only to charge others more rent, see everyone else as a competitor, and travel as fast as we can around the board to get the next $200 when passing Go…move so fast that we don’t even notice where we have been, there or less where we are going!
I understand the approach when it relates to winning a board game but it’s a little confronting when I think about the way that I’m living.
Then comes the kicker. I don’t know if I love this thought (the book title) but it certainly is true,
‘When the game is over, it all goes back in the box’
