"Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God." (Luke 12:21 NLT)
Unless you are moving, or doing the "40 bags out" during Lent (one bag out of the house for each day of Lent) you probably haven't stopped to think about how much stuff you actually have. I'm sure you have seen the commercials, the same as I have, about storage units. You fill up your house, organize your closets and still have too much to "fit" so you rent a place to store more stuff. I've been thinking about this, lately, because of the possibility of moving in the next year or so. One question is... what to do with almost 100 Nativity sets.
The Gospel reading today is about a farmer who takes down one barn, builds a bigger barn all so he can have "enough room" for his excellent harvest. The question raised isn't about the produce the farmer has, or how much stuff we have, the question is about our relationship with God. What kind of relationship do we have with God. "Love the Lord your God, with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength." (Matthew 22:37)
This is the middle of the growing season, at least in this part of the country, so how are you growing your relationship with God? As Caregivers we are trying to follow where God is leading with helping to take care of "our" person. The question is are we keeping the stronger relationship with God also? Something to think about............
