WHAT DO YOU OWN TODAY ?

   
   

 

A question:

 

What do you own today?

 

Lotís of us are young, wholesome, strong and energetic.

 

Most likely, you are either  going to school or you are already educated. Many of you have a career and position.

 

Many of you have a home, automobile or even considerable savings.

 

Actually, none of you own  these things. . .

 

You own  home? Actually, you donít. . .

You have an automobile? Actually, you donít. . .

You have a job? Actually, you donít

 

Our home, automobile, spouse, job. . .even our body and health. . .

 

We can lose all these within a second.

 

An earthquake can flatten  our home,  furniture  and even us to the ground.

 

A germ barely visible to the eye , can nail you to your bed.

 

With the pretext of downsizing you may lose your job and find yourself outside the door.

 

Many of us have a time-share. . .

 

That is, we have the right of  use of the things we own (usufructus).

 

Now, letís give this serious thought and answer:

 

What do you own today?

 

In order that ye may not despair over matters that pass you by, nor exult over favors bestowed upon you. For God loveth not any vainglorious boaster,-
