Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also

Paris_curve_43452345 So if you were going to jail, what would be the hardest thing to relinquish? Your personal freedom? Your family? Your wardrobe options?

Chuck Colson describes with raw realness in his book, Born Again, the overwhelming feeling of losing control over his physical body after his court hearing declared him guilty following the Watergate scandal back in 1974. Throughout his autobiography, his readers are made personally aware of the losses for those who live behind bars: the limited time with loved ones, the constant fear for one's life, the insufficient clothing, and the complete nullification of personal time and space.

But for some who serve jail time, it seems that there are more material things to be missed. People.com reports that celebutante Paris Hilton declared that the most difficult part of her short time spent in jail was this: "When you have your BlackBerry taken away, it's like the most painful thing ever."

Jesus said in Matthew 6:21 that where our treasure is, there our hearts will be also. Makes one think -- if I were to go to jail, what would I miss most? It's telling, isn't it?

Well, yeah - but just imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth if the wireless routers had crashed during GodBlogCon... :-)

Her Blackberry was her way to be in touch with her friends and family, so you should think of her statement meaning that being cut off from her loved ones was the hardest part. She's no role model(!) but lets be fair.
