The parable of the rich man who is foolish shows us how easy it is to be possessed by what we own. While the goods that we have are not bad in themselves, often our attachment to them can be so.

Do I see my earthly life in the light of heaven? Is there a relationship between how I live now and who I want to be forever?

O gracious God, may I enjoy a healthy detachment from everything except You. May I see all my relationships in light of mine with You.
