John Ortberg It’s not that such treasures are bad. It’s that they won’t last long. It’s all going back in the box. ~ John Ortberg. When we give casually, we receive casual joy.

If you think you have free rein over things that are naturally beyond your control, or if you attempt to adopt the affairs of others as your own, your purpose will be thwarted and you will become a frustrated, anxious, and faultfinding person. Jesus taught that we should speak truth without using words to manipulate, intimidate, deceive, or flatter. It’s not that such treasures are bad.

John Ortberg always delivers a great message of Truth and this one just adds to the list. I have read two other books of his, and I am on another one right now, but this story of truth is brought of many times by me thinking .."at the end of the day, it all goes back in the box." I even share this with close friends and family of mine. It really puts things in to perspective about life, and what is really important-- love, to be and to give others that. I recommend this for anyone, of all ages, and to those living of this world- it will open your eyes to what is truly LIVING.

Our church used this book for a summer series. We take nothing with us and talks of what really matters in our lives.
Good topics including our need for an eternal perspective, work on our relationships, careful of good serving but not where God want us and God really is master of this world. Explains using the old game 'Master of the Board". Another reminder that it is not about me. With Ortberg, you cannot go wrong. I recommend this book.

What a great book. This is the third time I have read it. I decided to buy a new book so I could share it with others. John Ortberg has a great way of reminding others how temporary "our stuff" and life is. The book is intermixed with great stories of John's grandma and the life lesson she taught him. I definitely recommend you read this book. His video and audio tapes ate also great.

Our church small group just completed this study. It was our first by John Ortberg. It was so good! Great lessons on prioritizing the important "eternal" things in life over the "temporary" physical possessions.
Lemana
I bought this book for my wife for Christmas, and she wanted it because the pastor at our last church (before we relocated) used to reference it.

We are both reading and really like it. It's challenging stuff, and I really enjoy the author's humorous stories and humility.

I'll probably read it at least one more time, and then order other books he has written.

I'd definitely recommend this for anyone that's ready to challenge his or her struggle with materialism.

I've thought about buy some extra copies to hand out as gifts because I think all Christians can benefit from reading this.
Alister
Excellent reminder of what is important in life! John Ortberg makes us think and that is a good thing! We used this for our book club and it was enjoyed by all!

This book helped center me and help me to keep my focus on what is truly important. I can't say this change happened over night for me. But I am gradually noticing the ways that I have let unimportant "noise" in my life dominate my thoughts and actions. I am now moving towards in a direction that I believe Jesus would want me to follow.
I think it was John Bunyan who said, "If a man would live well, let him fetch his last day to him and make it always his company keeper." This book is one to help you do just that. I read this book during Lent this year to help me with examen. It's a book every Christian should read reflectively. Ortberg mixes his words of wisdom with humor to make the medicine go down, but the book deals with a serious subject: How to live a life that really matters (to God, you and others you care for) and be the kind of person that others will love now and miss when you're gone. Life's too short to waste. I highly recommend it.
