In the wake of everything going on around us right now, this quote speaks volumes! How many of us are holding on to stuff that in the grand scheme of life, we can’t take with us, and won’t have any value? Closer to home and to our heart is WHO are we holding onto that we don’t want to let go of?
I know for myself it’s my children, my husband. For many of us, our families, maybe a best friend is core to who we hold onto in our hearts. It’s hard to let go of people we’re close to and love especially when we lose them suddenly without notice.
Jesus reminds us in Luke 14:26 AMP – “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life [in the sense of indifference to or relative disregard for them in comparison with his attitude toward God]—he cannot be My disciple.
Tough words? Yes. But the time we’re living in is a stark reminder that only what we have in Christ can we hold onto and take with us into eternity. Be Encouraged!❤️
Prayer: Father, help me hold onto you only and not people or the things of this world. I thank you for your love for me that will follow me into eternity. In Jesus Name! Amen.
