We took our 2 year old to the park on Sunday afternoon, and of course he ended up playing in a sandpit half the time. There were some shovels & buckets already there, so naturally he’s scooping and dumping sand everywhere. By the end of it, sand is on his head, in his socks, and even in his diaper 😂
Another little girl showed up and started playing with him, she was about a year older. It wasn’t long before the three year old started fussing & fighting over the toys. She kept grabbing shovels out of his hand and saying “mine!”
Elijah isn’t at the “mine” stage yet, and he didn’t know what to think, so he just started handing her everything. It was like an episode of Rugrats, Angelica was bossing Elijah around and he just submitted to her LOL
There is so much to be learned about life from a sandpit, here’s one thing:
Nothing here is mine.
The #verseoftheday today says,
“The LORD owns the earth and all it contains, the world and all who live in it.”
Our Life is a big sandpit. Nothing is mine, EVERYTHING is the Lords. Although we are still tempted to fight, claim and “earn” as much status, control, or wealth as we can. It’s important to remember that everything is the Lords, and everything I have is on loan from him. I’m a steward…a manager, not the owner.
We all have a greater responsibility to share, be kind, and consider others…because we are all on borrowed property.
Question of the day:
Have you ever loaned someone something…Maybe a car, or a place to stay? How did you expect them to treat it??
