If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. Matt. 16:25

Everyone has certain possessions, habits, or attitudes that are so important to us because we use them to feel secure, to soothe ourselves, or to define ourselves. So we try to hang onto things that end up hanging onto us. We have to keep looking at Jesus and following Him even if some of the hangers are dragging along behind.

Lord, this stuff hanging on me is sticky, help me give it up for Your sake.
