Hidden Nuggets Series #23 – “…the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 6:23
How are those Christmas gifts working out for you? What level of satisfaction are you receiving from them?
Gifts are awesome! My wife and I just purchased a 100+ yr. old oak pedestal table for our kitchen eating area. We’ve been looking for a larger kitchen table for the family because the six of us were sitting so close we were knocking knees under the old one. Some nights it was just easier for me to eat standing up, plate in hand.
We are already receiving satisfaction from that table. We have physical space so we can breathe now. Our dinners are more relaxed. After only several meals, I can’t imagine eating dinner in the kitchen without it.
While it’s a great gift we’ve given ourselves and does provide a convenience, it’s just a thing.
A possession that won’t last.
An asset that does not fulfill any deep emotional need inside our soul.
People are always looking for assets – something to fill that void in their life.
