Job 1:21 ” Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”

If you’ve ever had to pry the fingers of a two-year-old open around a toy they won’t share…you know just how selfish humans are about their possessions.  But I Timothy 6:7 tells us, “For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.”  Everything you have or have ever possessed was a gift from God.  But we consider possessions like potato chips…one isn’t enough…we want the entire bag!  So where is the balance?  The answer is contentment…happiness with what we have or don’t.  We can then look at our possessions from God’s perspective and hold on to them not with tight fists but with loose fingers.
