SPIRITUAL HOARDING

Clint Percefull


As you know we are in the process of getting new carpet around our church. Thankfully, our offices were not exempt from this endeavor. In preparation for this new flooring we were asked to help by getting our offices emptied and desks cleaned out so they were not too heavy and could be easily moved. This was the catalyst I needed to finally go through the drawers of old paperwork and stuff left behind by those who occupied this desk before me. As I rummaged through these old papers I would occasionally find a little nugget of a good idea or something that needed to be kept, but for the most part I found myself asking “Why would we keep this?” There were old packing lists of shipments from days gone by with code names for products that were indecipherable. Hand written notes with incomplete sentences like “Ask Mary what she needs to complete” and several conference outlines with blank lines on them. I have been in this office for some time now and for whatever reason I was holding on to all this junk. Meanwhile important stuff (for me) piled up on my desk looking for a home.


I can’t help but wonder how often I do this in my spiritual life as well. How often do I hold on to a grudge or hurt feelings? How often do I fill my life with worthless junk while letting the important stuff pile up somewhere else? How often do I hold on to something that seems important to me but is worthless to others or perhaps more importantly worthless to God. Colossians 3:1-17 remind us to rid our lives of this worthless junk and fill it with things above.


Cleaning out my desk gave me a great reminder that sometimes we need to do a little cleaning and get rid of some things that are worthless in our lives. Once we do this we have room for God to fill it with things that are pleasing to Him.


And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17)


Fun board game you probably haven’t heard of
