Stuff should lead you to God and His purpose for you, not away from Him. Is there any clutter in your life that needs to be unstuffed? - Daily Bible Reflections July 2,2015

UNSTUFF
 
“Because you acted as you did in not withholding from me your beloved son, I will bless you abundantly…” – Genesis 22:16
 
       In this world, there is God, and everything else is “stuff.” Stuff can be money, work, ministry or family. Stuff is neither good nor bad. It only becomes bad if it hinders us from worshipping and loving God.
       Oftentimes, we are too attached to stuff. We make it the sole reason for our happiness and meaning. In turn, we feel dissatisfied and empty because we seek happiness in the stuff of God, rather than the God of stuff.
       The story of Abraham and Isaac is a story of unstuffing. For many years, Abraham and Sarah were praying for a baby. After a gazillion years of waiting, there came Isaac, the miracle baby of Sarah’s old age. Then here comes God asking Abraham to offer his most precious stuff, Isaac.
       It must have been extremely difficult for him, but Abraham’s faith in God prevailed. He unstuffed so he could truly worship God. What happened? God spared Isaac, and He filled Abraham’s life with the blessings of numerous descendants!
       Unstuff today. When you do, you leave a space for God to stuff you with better things. Velden Lim (veldenlim@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: Stuff should lead you to God and His purpose for you, not away from Him. Is there any clutter in your life that needs to be unstuffed?
 
Lord, may I have less stuff, and more of You.
 
St. Oliver Plunkett, pray for us.
