Enjoy The Gravy
Enjoy Your Life! It's All Gravy!
Just Remember Everything Is HIS
James 4.14 Our lives are but a vapor
Luke 12: 18-20 "Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry."'
20 "But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'
I like gravy but I rarely eat it. Let's be real, it's not great for the heart and veins!
My buddy Jim Murray before he died wanted biscuits and gravy. He wasn't worried about cholesterol he knew he only had a couple of weeks to live.
My mother would make gravy if we had company. She would put gravy in a big bowl and make biscuits and her gravy and biscuits were awesome! We would sit around our dining room table and pass the gravy. The smell of fresh coffee, eggs, bacon and homemade jam is a pleasant aroma to me to this day. We enjoyed the gravy and time around the table but it was oh to very brief.
We live in an age of "I, me and mine." An acquaintance of mine spends a lot of time talking about "his" property, his house and everything else that "he" owns. The truth of the matter is that it really isn't his property it's His property.
I understand because it feels good for all of us to own something. Home ownership is a dream come true for most people. Owning a car, clothes to wear or whatever the possession is something that humans have always enjoyed.
Over the last twenty years or more I've learned that we really do not own anything. We are only caretakers for a while. We are stewards or managers of life and all that is in life. Even our very lives are given to us very briefly. We don't even own our bodies. God made us and he can take us out of here and back to the dust whenever he chooses.
