A Crumbling Castle: A F itting Tribute

PowerPoint 프레젠테이션:

Today I will tell you the story of George C. Boldt He became rich and famous at the start of the 20 th century because he built the Bellevue hotel in Philadelphia… And the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York

PowerPoint 프레젠테이션:

Mr. Boldt was deeply in love with his wife and he wanted to built something magnificent to honor her Would he build his grandest hotel and name it after her?

PowerPoint 프레젠테이션:

Mr. Boldt had something bigger in mind to build for his wife… Mr . Boldt grew up in Germany, where he used to see many Medieval Castles along the Rhine river

PowerPoint 프레젠테이션:

So Mr. Boldt made a plan to built his beloved wife a castle, like the ones he remembered on an island he owned in the St. Lawrence River, in New York state Nothing but the best would go into the castle. He hired the best architects and artists from around the world to build his masterpiece

PowerPoint 프레젠테이션:

He ordered the finest of everything. Hand-carved marble fireplaces from Italy, paintings from the old world, the best wood and stone was shipped in abundance Mr. Boldt spared no expense, he simply poured massive amounts of money into this monument to his wife

PowerPoint 프레젠테이션:

And Mr. Boldt ordered work on the castle to stop immediately But sadly, as the castle was nearing completion… Mrs. Boldt died suddenly…

PowerPoint 프레젠테이션:

From that time, for 73 years the castle simply laid unfinished, with all the nice building materials just laying around and eventually became ruined Visitors came to the island to see the ruins, and some people marked the walls… until it became unsafe for people to walk around

PowerPoint 프레젠테이션:

The really sad thing about this monument Mr. Boldt built is the colossal waste it all turned out to be For the same money he could have built a modern hospital, or set up a revolving fund that helps young people go to school or a charity for the needy, or built a fully equipped university And these could have been named after his wife, a nd her memory would live on in the hearts of the thousands of people who could have been helped by his generosity

PowerPoint 프레젠테이션:

But what about us? Few of us have millions to squander… but God has given us treasures more precious: God has given us our lives, our brains, our personalities and dreams… Will we build useless life castles or will we built lives that bless and help other people?
