Designed by God

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. Are these things not gifts from God that sooner or later…will not last? When we do not cling to those things and are willing to let them go and to use them to serve others…when we give our lives and strip away the masks that we wear…we find our true selves. Who am I essentially at the most basic level? A child of God…loved by our Creator for no other reason…than that.

Suggested song of the day– “How Wonderful to Me” on the Live to Love album.
