One growing industry in the United States is the auctioning of storage units. Companies like American Auctioneers make a killing every year by giving investment entrepreneurs the chance to purchase furnished storage units. The rules are pretty simple. Storage units, with all of their furnishings, are eligible to be auctioned off if rent is three months past due. Most units aren't worth very much, but some units provide huge pay offs for those who are willing to take the risk.
One man in San Jose, California was willing to take the risk, and he took the phrase, "One man's trash, another man's treasure" to the extreme. He purchased a unit for $1,100 and found $500,000 of gold and silver in a box so heavy that it required three men to carry it out. I guess you could say that $498,900 profit in one day is a fairly good investment.
As God's children, we have the opportunity to invest in Jesus Christ. It carries the cost of our lives, but the pay offs are incredible, and there is absolutely no risk involved. Jesus already purchased us at Calvary, and in Him we find the treasure of eternal life.
Invest in Jesus. It's the opportunity of a life time!
