The mausoleum business is booming, reports William Falk in The Week. People are spending from $250,000 to $2 million to be buried inside an imitation of the temples of the Roman gods and goddesses. One maker sold 2,000 last year, up from 65 only 20 years ago. "The mausoleum says, 'I'm really significant in this world,'" said a cemetery owner. Other cultures have lavished inordinate resources on the death industry (think of the pyramids of Egypt!). But does any of this really help in the quest for immortality?

The only One who knows immortality inside and out showed the way: We should not lay up treasure for ourselves, but be rich toward God—"for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Luke 12:21, 34). I think everyone would agree that a living heart in God"s Kingdom is much better than one moldering in a marble mausoleum.
