He who has God and everything else has no more than he who has God only. (C. S. Lewis, late British author)

Even devout followers of God sometimes find themselves in the trap of accumulating too much “stuff.” It seems to be human nature to want to collect things of value and, sometimes, just amusing trinkets of little value. At death, it often is a burdensome task for the survivors and heirs to dispose of all the inherited goods. Lewis’ words are a good reminder about the values of life.

Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord (Philippians 3:8).
