There is something sad about spending money for nothing; we all know the importance of money in our lives.
Sometimes wasting money can be really silly too.
A highly unusual statue was recently sold in Milan, Italy, for $18,300.
It was remarkable, because the statue is invisible !
Artist Salvatore Garau assured the public that although no one can see the sculpture, it exists, in his imagination. He promised to provide the new owner with a certificate of authenticity.
After I stopped laughing about this latest evidence of society’s growing bizarreness, I was struck by the name of the sculpture. It is called ‘Io Sono’, which translates into English as : I AM.
It was perhaps an audacious title for an invisible sculpture, since, when God identifies himself to Moses in Exodus 3:14, He reveals Himself as ‘I AM THAT I AM’ ..
God, the Great I Am , lead the Israelites through the desert, and He is the I Am who walks beside us each moment. The great I Am knows, and holds the future.
And so, as the world increases its rebellion, we stay calm and confident, knowing that God is in control, even when invisible statues called ‘I am’ are sold for thousands of dollars.
