What are the things you can't live without?
This is the question that I am asking young people around the circuit at the moment. I have had a number of different answers to this question from 2017 essential items such as their mobile phones and games consoles through to more simple pleasures of a good book or food.
This question is an interesting one, when we strip everything else away what do we really need, what do we cling too? Is it your phone a little machine that can seemingly do everything or is it something sentimental, a photo, a blanket or even your favourite item of clothing.
What does this say about you?
Where is faith in all of this, when we strip it all away what beliefs do we cling too. Do we really care about some of the things we like to have disagreements about or do we just like having something to disagree with people with.
The more things gets stripped away the more we get down the core of who we are. I always remember the Matt Redman worship song “When the music fades” when thinking about this.
When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that's of worth
That will bless your heart
Sometimes we make everything so complicated. When all we need to do is come with the correct attitude to things.
So what are the things that you can't live without? Who are you when things are stripped away?
