When Blessings Become Burdens

While riding the trails at a state park, my bike fenders became so clogged with mud and leaves I could barely go.

Carrying the bike on my shoulders soon wore me out, so I started dragging it on the ground. A stroll through the woods would have been much more pleasant.

Life can be a lot like that!

What was supposed to be a help became a hindrance. Possessions can do that.

“. . . not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions” (Luke 12:15b).

The Source for life as it was meant to be

Jesus provides what mere things cannot: true meaning for this life, with something far better to look forward to on the other side (Matthew 6:19-21).
