Possessed by possessions

Then he [Jesus] said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”  Luke 12:15

The one who ends up with the most toys does not win. Jesus was not interested in amassing wealth or possessions. He had no house, one cloak, travelled on foot, and frequently relied on the hospitality of others for food. Jesus grew up in a working class carpenter’s family and walked away from His possessions. The things Jesus owned never owned Him.

Lord, I don’t want to be possessed by my possessions. I’d rather be Your possession so that whatever I possess is Yours.
