Monday Blog

I wrote my blog this morning and forgot to post it and it is at home and I am at the University. That is the way this Monday has gone! I know that I wrote about Jesus saying take care to guard "against all greed, for though one may be rich, one's life does not consist of possessions."
And I have so many possessions! Am I like the rich man in the parable that Jesus told who made more space to store his treasure and thought he would then enjoy time to rest, eat, drink, and be merry, but God said to him, "You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong? Thus will if be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what matters to God."

I am like you, Sister. I just have too many possessions. I recall after the 1994 earthquake here how I started to get rid of things & then after my mother died. But, here I am again with really too much to handle & it is a disgrace. Possessions are really burdensome & can hinder our way to God.

I agree, but we seem to want to hold on to so much that is really not necessary. I thought of those who have just lost everything in the fires that are destroying homes in San Diego - they are safe and that is more important than the possessions they have lost. Maybe today I can begin to get rid of some of the extras that I have accumulated! Thank you for your comment.
