God said, “I want your home.” The man said, “Ok, you can have it.”
God said, “Do you have a wallet? I want that to.” The man reluctantly said, “Ok?”
God said, “I see you have a car, I want that.” The man said, “What? OK??”
God said, “Ah, a Most Blessed family.” The man jumped up and said, “What?? You want them to??” God responded immediately, “Yes I want them to!”
The man was shocked he sat back and said, “Lord you have taken everything that I have, everything that I own, everything that I possess, everyone that I love, leaving me with nothing??” God got real close to the man, put His arm around the man’s shoulder and pulled him in, whispering in his ear. “Take all these things I have asked from you, handle them with great care and respect them and continue to use them honoring me. Remember that all these things are mine first and always shall be, but I shall entrust them to you.” The man was now smiling ear to ear knowing that he had not lost one thing, he didn’t have to lose anything in order to love and worship God. This man did learn a great deal about what all these treasures in his life now meant to him.
