We had to have the meeting but one look at those six flights of stairs and our staff quickly decided between essentials and frills. A failed elevator demanded we carry all the supplies up stairs. The choice of essentials versus fluff suddenly became quite clear. Oh, if life could only be so simple.
But it is! What must we carry with us? What is best left behind?
Strip yourselves of your former nature [put off and discard your old unrenewed self] which characterized your previous manner of life and becomes corrupt through lusts and desires that spring from delusion; and be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude], And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 4:22-24, AMP)
Prayer- Lord give us wisdom to choose…In Christ who left everything for us. Amen.
