If you lost everything…

What's important in lifeThis past Sunday I attended my last church service at Northpoint Church, in Sylvania, OH. Well last church service until I come home to visit. I have one more Sunday in Ohio and one Sunday in Maryland and then I leave to fulfill God’s calling for me, at this point of my life, as a missionary in Germany.

The last message was a good one and got me thinking. The pastor said something to the effect of if you lost everything, but could save one thing, what would you save?

The answer to this question is much deeper than you could originally think. You could think of a physical item you would save as most people probably would (if you asked them outside of church). You could also think about losing literally everything, friends, family, possessions, your faith, etc. How would that change your answer.

I have no answer for you, as I have no answer for me. I thought about my family, but then how would life be without friends? Maybe I would save my friends then, but what about my family? What about saving those that need saving the most? I could be extremely selfish or I could be extremely selfless.

These are the questions that drive me crazy, because I can’t imagine a right answer. Is there a right answer? What would Jesus do (man, I just had a flashback to those bracelets, yikes!)? What should my answer be? What would my answer be?

I would love to hear your thoughts below!
