Jesus and Our Stuff (part four)

When we depend on our stuff, we worry that we might not have enough. When we worry that we might not have enough, we stockpile all we can find. When we stockpile and hoard, we neglect the needy and less fortunate and fall into narcissistic selfishness. We find ourselves investing in the less valuable treasures on earth instead of storing up permanent treasures in heaven. We also presume upon God regarding the amount of time we have on earth. On the other hand, when we depend on a heavenly Father who tenderly cares for us like a loving Shepherd cares for His sheep, we rest in Him. Where have you placed your dependence?
