He was a million times richer than Bill Gates. . . for a day. Think of the possibilities. Last week Chris Reynolds became the world’s richest man . . . for a while. Imagine the Pennsylvania account executive’s surprise when his monthly statement from Pay Pal showed a balance of $92,233,720,368,547,800, that’s 92 quadrillion dollars. Alas, when he logged in to his account it showed a balance of $0.00, zip, nada. It had all been a software glitch.
In a matter of degrees we are all like Chris Reynolds, everything we have, we only have temporarily. Oh, we might get to hold on to what we have longer than Reynolds did, but in the long run everything we have will belong to someone else.
When asked what he would have done if it had of been a reality, Reynolds commented that he was a responsible man, “I would pay the national debt down first. Then I would buy the Phillies, if I could get a great price.”
But the question isn’t what we would do with the 92 quadrillion dollars we don’t have but what we are doing with what God has given us, for however long God has trusted us with it. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
