The Sweet Spot
Jesus says to store up treasure with God, not for yourself. He also says that God counts every hair and cares for our daily needs. So possessions are bad and possessions are good??? I want to get this right, Jesus, so what is it!?
I can just hear Jesus sighing and giving me a story (parable) to help me figure it out.
We often want just clear guidance, a perfect understanding. But that doesn’t seem to be the plan. Instead, we can look for the sweet spot, where possessions are seen as gifts from God, but never a replacement for God. We can look for the sweet spot where God is our focus and our hearts stay there. We can look for the sweet spot, that heaven on earth where are lives are attuned to our Lord and Savior.
