:::day nineteen::: FAST FROM POSSESSIONS

wednesday, october 7
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” ~ Jim Elliot
Do you possess your possessions or do they possess you? When we forget that our earthly treasures will one day pass away, it is easy to hold our belongings with a tight fist. But when we live like we believe that our real treasure is only found in Jesus, we can consider everything else as “rubbish.” What if our possessions had so little control over us that we would happily give someone the coat we were wearing, or the shoes off of our feet, or even the keys to our car? And instead of feeling a sense of loss, we felt liberated. Choose today to experience the freedom of giving something away… maybe not just the stuff you don’t like or don’t need, but something you do like or do need.
How can you practice storing up your treasures in heaven, for “there your heart will be also?”

Read... Philippians 3:7-8; Luke 12:13-21; I John 3:17
