Some recent events and conversations in my own life pointed me to this simple fact yesterday:
I can't take institutions, money, or stuff with me when I go to heaven. The only thing that I can take from here is people.
So how do I live my life knowing this? Great question.
I think that I often underestimate God's power:
"Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen." Epheshians 3:20-21
