Van Pulled Over for Mountain of Belongings Strapped to Top

Most anyone who has ever moved to a new home at one point or another knows the challenge of trying to pack the most items possible into a car, van, or moving truck. If space runs out on the inside of the vehicle, one or two things can often be carefully strapped to the top. One New Hampshire driver, however, took some liberty with the space on top of their van, stacking up an almost-incredible pile of personal belongings. The top of the car held multiple pieces of large furniture, a shovel, a bike, and even a flat screen TV. The stack almost doubled the height of the van. The precarious-looking creation, though undeniably impressive, did not amuse state troopers. The vehicle was pulled over, ticketed, and towed to prevent "a potential accident from occurring."

Potential Preaching Angles: Are there worldly possessions in your life that you might find hard to leave behind? Matthew 6:21 says, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
