What are we Hoarding? ~ Opening Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
As the world responds or reacts to COVID-19, we see people panic-buying so many material things. These are things they fear being without. They are the things one thinks will bring peace of mind or a sense of security in uncertain times. There is no material thing that can bring a feeling of sustainable peace.
This will not be about toilet paper, sanitizing gel, or bottled water. It is not about holding onto false security over the things that will be gone when they are gone. We have taken it for granted for years that we will always have these things. We have wasted resources and failed to be thankful for the abundance we have as a society.
What I would like us to consider and develop is an understanding of the intangible things we hoard. They are the things that we cannot hold and be healthy. If we can speak honestly about the two-sided coins kept in our internal storehouses, we may be able to find that we have more to give and less to hold onto than we imagined. We may have more to give than we dream.
I will keep this as light as possible and not ask you to carry more than you can. I will ask you to share your thoughts and questions so I can become better at holding what is healthy and letting go of that which will not help. My heart is to give you encouragement and freedom in our necessary isolation Dear Reader. My desire is to help us emerge from this with better love for each other.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a homeowner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
