Men…we know that when it comes to packing for a trip that we bring the lightest suitcase. But that might not be the only bags that we pack along the way. Check out this devotional from Max Lucado:
I don’t know how to travel light. But I need to learn. You can’t enjoy a journey carrying so much stuff—so much luggage. Odds are, somewhere this morning between the first step on the floor and the last step out the door, you grabbed some luggage.
Don’t remember doing so? That is because you did it without thinking. That’s because the bags we grab aren’t made of leather, they are made of burdens. The suitcase of guilt. Garment bag of anxiety. A duffel bag of weariness, a hanging bag of grief. A backpack of doubt, an overnight bag of fear. Lugging luggage is exhausting!
God is saying, “Set that stuff down. You’re carrying burdens you don’t need to bear.” Jesus says in Matthew 11:28, “Come to Me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
Be Strong. Pack Lighter.
