Be Your True Self

Let go of your attachments…and live.

Psalm 97:7

All who serve idols are put to shame, who glory in worthless things.

What are the things of “worth” in your life?

What things do you assign a high value?

Do any of these things last?

Do any of these things have eternal value?

It seems our culture glories in many things that are illusions. They are the things of power, prestige, appearance and possessions.

They will all eventually disintegrate.

What are the things that I glory in that at the end of the day…are truly worthless?

I believe God gives us all kinds of things to enjoy as long as we always remember that God is the giver of those things.

We are not meant to glory in the things…but in the Giver of the things.

A good test for each of us would be to look at any power, prestige or possession that we have (any enjoyment) and ask ourselves: Am I letting this thing define me?

Could I simply let go of this…if God asked me to?

Is this thing blocking me from my life-giving, Divine Source?
