Let Go

Luke 17:33
“Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it.”

Statements like this one from Jesus really make us think. What things in our lives do we hold on to and become identified with? It could be our possessions, our titles, our positions, our popularity or our abilities. We become attached to these things. But none of it will last. When we do not cling to those things but are willing to use those things to serve others…when we give our lives and strip away the masks that we wear…we find our true selves. We are children of God…loved by our Creator for no other reason…than that.

Suggested song of the day–“Take the Road Less Traveled” on the Live to Love album.
