God is so big! Of the estimated 155 billion people ever born, all have had the unique privilege of having a personal relationship with him. It is our personal journey called “life.” It’s very simple. Live a selfish life serving yourself, or a life serving Him by serving others. Jesus showed us the way. In Matthew 6, Jesus tells us the Truth on how to live a peaceful, harmonious, righteous life. In verse 33 He says “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” The more stuff you have in life, the more you have to learn to surrender. This makes life proportionately more complicated. If you own ‘stuff’ like a car, house, furniture, etc., chances are you have loans, insurance, taxes, and other responsibilities to maintain your stuff. Every piece of stuff you own requires a certain amount of time and effort to maintain it. Many of us are more controlled by grasping onto our hard-earned stuff, rather than knowing that God gave it to us so that we could learn to give it away.
