Leaving My Stuff

“Don’t be obsessed with getting more material things. Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you.”
Hebrews 13:5 The Message

According to a recent article in Florida Today, people are leaving their stuff everywhere. Cab drivers find all kinds of items left by fares. In just two weeks, Denver International Airport collected 74 cell phones and 96 laptops forgotten at security checkpoints. Florida airports report people forgetting their jackets there, perhaps due to the warm weather. People even forget to reclaim their shoes after an evening at the bowling alley.

God wants us to enjoy blessings He provides, but maybe we just have too much stuff.

Why?

Why do we seem to have a constant thirst for more and more?

Could it be that we have forgotten God’s words of assurance that He will never leave us.

Maybe we ought to leave behind some of our possessions. Intentionally. Purposefully.

Simplify and learn to be content with God.

What do I need to leave behind?
