Time for a Great Cartoon: Getting and Having

What insight Watterson has on the human condition! In our consumeristic culture, we are constantly bombarded with the message of GETTING.

Jesus said that a man’s life does not consist in what he HAS. We are of far more value than our possessions or our assets. The God who has “richly given us all things to enjoy” warns us not to put our hope in uncertain riches, but in God (I Tim. 6).

How do you look at your possessions? In 2003 we lost virtually everything we owned when our house burned down. A few things survived (such as our wedding album), but a malfunctioning attic fan started the fire that could have killed my family of four and our daughter-in-law.

As Corrie Ten Boom once said, ““Hold everything in your hands lightly, otherwise it hurts when God pries your fingers open.”
