Your room is ready

The Winchester Mystery House is a favourite tourist destination in California. It belonged to Sarah Winchester, widow of the man who invented the Winchester Rifle – the gun that won the West. Sarah was troubled for her soul and her husband’s because of all the Native Americans killed by his invention. So she sought help from mediums who told her to placate the spirits of the dead by making a place for them in her house. And, for the next thirty eight years until her death, she squandered her fortune adding rooms to the house and holding nightly séances to receive new directions.
How much happier her life would have been if she’d just accepted the promise Jesus made when he said, “In my Father’s house are many rooms, I go to prepare a place for you.” How much happier would we be, if we did the same.
