To Hold To The Things Of This World Lightly

Dear Lord Jesus, we thank You for our home, which You have graciously provided for us. Lord, I am aware that You had nowhere to lay Your head. You had no place that You could call Your home when You walked this earth. Help me to hold the things of this world lightly, and not allow them to become of such importance that I start to look on them as a form of idol in my life.

Oh Lord, I know that my home is filled with many little treasures and keep-sakes that are very special to me, and I thank You for each one. But Lord, I also know that all I have has comes from You, and all that we own is a gift of grace from You. O Lord, help me not to cling tightly to the things of this world.

Father, I know that my true home is in heaven and that You have prepared a place for me there. Help me to keep the things of this life in their proper perspective. May I be wise and thankful for all that You have given me, but also to keep my heart in heavenly places. I look forward to the day when You will bring me into that wonderful home that You have prepared for me in heaven. In Jesus' name,
