Every fall I start stirring in my stuff. There is closet ,drawer, attic and basement stuff. I separate the good stuff from the bad stuff, then I stuff the bad stuff anywhere the stuff is not too crowded until I decide if I need the bad stuff.
When the Lord calls me home, my children will want the good stuff, but the bad stuff, stuffed wherever there is room among all the other stuff, will be stuffed in bags and taken to the dump where all the other people’s stuff has been taken.
This fall I had an extra closet built so I would have a place for all the stuff too good to throw away and too bad to keep with my good stuff. You may not have this problem, but I seem to spend a lot of time with stuff……food, cleaning, medicine, clothes and outside stuff. Whatever would life be like if we didn’t have all this stuff?
Now there is all that stuff we use to make us smell better, stuff to make our hair look good. Stuff to make us look younger….healthier, stuff to hold us in, and stuff to fill us out! There is stuff to read, play with, entertain us, and stuff to eat. We stuff ourselves with food stuff.
Well, our lives are filled with stuff…good stuff, bad stuff, little stuff, big stuff useful stuff, junky stuff, and everyone’s stuff.
Now when we leave all our stuff and go to heaven, whatever happens to our stuff won’t matter. We will still have the good stuff God has prepared for us in heaven!!!!
