A thought experiment.
Imagine nothing is yours. You need all these things but you don’t own them. The money you earn. The house you buy. Your wife. Your great children. The glitzy car. The perfect job. Kudos on an award. And the list goes on.
If you went with these thoughts for awhile and actively envision that these are God’s things and he has given them to you to serve him, how does that change your life? How long can you keep up these thoughts?
I’m sure it takes a lot of work to get into that mindset. Once we master it, we may be truly liberated.
