We have too much to live with and too little to live for. (Os Guinness, English author and social critic.)
On your next exercise walk, take a look in the open garages of your neighbors. What’s missing? In some of them, you’ll see lots of “stuff” but no automobile. You might wonder what their attics, storerooms, and closets look like. Now, there’s nothing wrong with having things, but what do the recreational and sports “toys” and all the other stuff suggest about their life goals?
Don’t store up treasures here on earth . . . Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. (Matthew 6:19-20)
