“‘If we planned to stay here, then it would make sense to accumulate and enjoy all the earthly comforts,’ but ‘it just makes sense to travel lightly,’ since heaven is our destination.” ~ Quote from an Amish man in The Amish by Donald B. Kraybill, Karen M. Johnson-Weiner, and Steven M. Nolt
Possessions, material goods, wealth…things that we acquire in our journey through this life. They can make our stay here pleasurable; we can enjoy them with our loved ones, even give them to bless others.
But in some measure, they may only weigh us down, narrow our focus to the here and now instead of the ever after.
May we remember our destination. After all, we are simply pilgrims, just passing through.
Let’s travel lightly, my friends.
