Hoard or heave?

Hoarder’s motto:

I might need it someday.

Solomon’s wisdom:

“A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw away (Ecclesiastes 3:6 NKJV).”

The LORD keeps me safe in His hand.

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one (John 10:27-30 NKJV).”

He keeps His promises.

Am I faithfully keeping His great commandment?

“Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment (Matthew 22:37-38 NKJV).”

That’s a keeper.

What should I throw away?

My rubbish…

“But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead (Philippians 3:7-11 NKJV).”
