A Matter of Possession

today's reading.
Luke 12:13-21

the blog.
Bigger, newer, better, more. Sound familiar? It should because that's the clear message being put before us on television, in magazines, on the internet, at the mall. Having "things" is important from a worldly perspective. But God's perspective is different. "Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions" (Luke 12:16). 

Jesus' words definitely got me thinking about my focus, attitude and motivation. It led me to consider--Do I possess things or do my things possess me? 

Any thoughts? Tami
