Let Go and Live

What attachments are blinding you to true life?

~~~

Mark 6:8

Jesus instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick–no food, no sack, no money in their belts.

Just how obsessed are you with your possessions?

This “stuff” that won’t last becomes such a focus of our attention. We sometimes call certain things our “prized-possessions.” Those same “prizes” will one-day be junk.

How much precious time do we waste on keeping, securing and multiplying our possessions?

It’s not the stuff that is inherently bad…it’s our attachment to it.

Jesus sent his apostles out with nothing…so that nothing would distract them from devoting themselves to imparting the love, mercy, grace, forgiveness and compassion of God to all. They were about the business of building the kingdom of God.

“Letting-go” is not about losing anything of worth…but about gaining more of what truly is.

Start now…so that when it comes time for your final letting-go…you will be well-versed in dying and rising to new life.
