Trying to be a good steward.
Life is this delicate balancing act where we learn to hold to the things that matter most as tightly as we can and as loosely as we can. The danger lies in not appreciating the precious blessings we have been given or in holding them so tightly we don't acknowledge that all things belong to God. We put trust in them instead of the One who made them and shares them with us. The goal is to value and care for them while being ready to give them back to God whenever He asks. I guess that's what good stewardship is. And it applies to all areas of our lives...family, friends, the ones we love and the ones we struggle to love, possessions, opportunities...all of it.
I think this concept would be a lot easier if emotions didn't play a role in these things. :)
