TOPIC: TREASURES LEFT BEHIND
Basic Scripture: ECCLESIATES 1: 11-18
As Common with other treasures left behind by the Iraqi dictator, toppled in 2003 during the U.S-led invasion and hanged three years later for crimes against humanity, the government that succeeded him has been struggling to find a use for his private luxury ship, (the presidential yacht) called the “BASRAH BREEZE.” Equipped with a presidential suite comprisng the late Saddam Hussein’s private quarters, dining rooms and bedrooms, as well as 17 smaller guest rooms, 18 cabins for crew and a clinic, the opulently equipped and decorated luxury ship, the “BASRAH BREEZE never used by SADDAM, has been serving the Basra University, hosting researchers on trips to study marine life.

Built by a Danish shipyard while Iraq was at war with Iran, the shıp was passed on to Saudi Arabia -then a Saddam ally to protect it from air strikes on Basra. The Saudi Arabian kingdom, which fell out with Saddam after Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, then handed the SHIP over to Jordan. While the “BASRAH BREEZE survived the turmoil of Saddam’s decline and demise, its sister ship, “AI-MANSUR” (a second luxury presidential ship – which SADAAM also never used), suffered a different fate. It sank in the waterway that passes through Basra after it was hit by U.S. planes and then stripped bare in the chaotic aftermath of his overthrow. Oh! What is life? Two luxury ships NEVER USED and LEFT BEHIND as life’s lessons to others! Indeed, TREASURES LEFT BEHIND will be the story of every human – YOU WILL LEAVE ALL YOUR TREASURES BEHIND!
It is the will of God that you quit trying to make the temporary things of this world the main thing in your life! That is; quit looking for your 1identity, your security, and life’s meaning in the stutf of this world (the Bible calls this idolatry)! Indeed, vanity blossoms but bares no fruit! No wonder the richest man that ever lived in his generation-SOLOMON- declared in Verse 14 of today’s word: “I have seen all the works that are done under the sun: and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.” Please spend more time investing in ETERNITY! You will leave all this sweet and beautiful stuff behind! Your body will grow old and decay!
Beauty will fade! Your friends will die and loneliness will set in! You will take no TREASURE along to your FINAL DESTINATION! Oh, life! Always remenmber SADDAM and thousands like him gone by, described by two words “TREASURES LEFT BEHIND!” Pray now! Our Daily Manna Devotional 11 March 2020 – TREASURES LEFT BEHIND.
