A Matter of Possession

| | Comments (2)

dreaming of possessions

Today's reading: Luke 12:13-21

Bigger, newer, better, more. Sound familiar? It should because that's the clear message being put before us on television, in magazines, on the internet, at the mall. Having "things" is important from a worldly perspective. But God's perspective is different. "Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions" (Luke 12:16).

Jesus' words definitely got me thinking about my focus, attitude and motivation. It led me to consider--Do I possess things or do my things possess me?

Any thoughts? Tami

I feel its ok to have nice things but when they are taking you away from God and your family we may need to step back and look at what really matters in life. By taking away I mean having to work all the time to pay for it or spending all your time taking care of your house or other things first before God or your family.

Right. When we allow our things to possess us--when our priorities get out of order--we tread on dangerous ground.
