It's pretty cool to see some of the bargains you can get through this online auction. I've renewed my interest in autographed sports cards which I used to collect when I was younger. But the prices now are pretty crazy ... some autographed cards are selling for hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.
Of course I don't win these auctions; I'm usually the guy who gets the bids going at $1.00 (hoping none of the other millions of users will see the auction), but eventually, I get outbid and then that Michael Jordan autograph goes to the guy who dished out $12,000.00 instead. Don't believe they go for that much? Check out the links here and here. Psycho!
Anyways, when I get into something, I can really get into it. But I think eBay is one thing I don't want to be too addicted to. Because some people have gotten so addicted to eBay that it consumes their life ... an amazing example of this is found here. Crazy!!
So as I clean out all my things and realize how much "stuff" I have ... and how much stuff I really don't need ... the words of Christ echo in my ear:
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21
May Christ always be my everything ...
