Everything Colin

A collection of the things that I write, share, make and dream.

A man's life does not result from the things he possesses

I found myselfnoddingmy head in agreement with Shawn Blanc's It's Just Stuff:

I may drive a Jeep because I’m a Colorado boy at heart, and I may own a charcoal grill because I like things “pure”, and I may own Apple gadgets because I have an affinity for fine software. So yes, you can tell a lot about me by the things I own. But they are just that — things. They can be stolen, broken, taken, and lost. They should never become distractions to the things that matter most, nor should I ever allow them to define my character, my relationships, and my beliefs.

Knowingly or not his statement rings very true with something Jesus said at Luke 12:15 that a man's life does not result from the things hepossesses. It's Just Stuff.
