Opinion - Holding our possessions lightly

Our capacity for self-delusion is seemingly endless and never more pronounced than when it serves to distract us from the inevitability of death. We may indeed have a lovely home, a stylish wardrobe and good food on the table. Thank God for this, let us enjoy these possessions but hold them lightly, knowing that they are not our real life and will one day pass away.

We must be clear eyed, not blind with the desire to accumulate our goods, to build bigger barns. What we have is not nearly so important as what we have shared with others - friendship, kindness, compassion, food and clothing. These are what make us really real, and able to face death with hope because we have not stored up treasures for ourselves. - St Columban's Mission Society (click below for full article)
