The reality is that God owns everything. We are only stewards of the gifts He has given us. If you doubt this reality, drive by any cemetery; you will not see any banks, real estate agencies, electronics stores etc. We can’t take anything with us that does not truly belong to us. The only thing that has been given to us, the only thing that is genuinely ours, is our eternal soul…the rest we leave behind.
Please consider this truth of life this Christmas season and find time to reconnect with God in Church. As for the coming fiscal cliff…..human beings have lived many centuries without housing markets and stock portfolios or pension plans, but WE ALL NEED OUR SOULS.
