The Stuff

It’s really hard to imagine something we can’t understand. If I told you to imagine a cross between a unicorn, Thursday, and love, you’d probably be like, “What the heck?” Imagining heaven is even more difficult. Yet, we’re told that we want to get there. That’s the end goal, and we won’t get to take all of the stuff we acquire in this life on this earth. In fact, that “stuff” can hold us back.

Everything and everyone is seemingly telling us we need “stuff,” but God is telling us something different. He tells us that we need Him, and He will provide all of the stuff that we need. We’re called to sacrifice everything the world tells us we need for something we don’t understand. That’s pretty tough. Yet, our faith tells us God exists. And our hope tells us that He has a plan for us that will get us to heaven. So let go, and let God.
