A lot of the fear & stress we deal with on a daily basis stems from trying to hold onto things we have: money, resources, relationships, perspectives, dreams of the future. Obviously, none of those things is bad. But we must learn to hold them loosely. Rich or poor, full or empty, whether life is panning out exactly according to our plan, we have to keep from holding too tightly to anything, even a mindset or a future expectation.
Jesus…“rich as He was, He gave it all away for us – in one stroke he became poor and we became rich.” (2 Cor. 8:9 MSG)
Just like Jesus…learn to live life with an open hand.
