How many times have you walked through your garage or basement and thought, I don’t really need this; why do I keep hanging onto it? Sometimes our stuff can get in the way of more important things. When Deanna’s mother died several months ago, we emptied her parents' storage unit full of stuff they had accumulated through the years. After unloading it into our garage, I thought for sure we could assimilate all of it within a couple of weeks. A couple of weeks turned into a couple of months and I now realize that our cars may have to endure a Utah winter outside their normal habitat. That stuff is going to be there a while! It’s easy to accumulate things over time that eventually get in the way of what is more necessary. The same can be true in the Christian life. Over time, we collect things in our souls that are really not helpful for our journey on earth. Just as a garage or basement might become crowded with unneeded stuff, so can our souls. In today's message, we consider the importance of jettisoning unneeded cargo during the trials of life.
