The things I have to throw away

backpack

This is a fragrance of Zion in the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG).

I am the member of the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG). One day, I looked for a backpack to go on a picnic. However, I could not remember where I had put it. Though I opened all the closets and drawers and searched everywhere all my efforts came to nothing. Just to be sure, I went into the storage room. There was no place to step because of a lot of stuff accumulated. Right there, I found a big backpack taking up a certain amount of space.

While taking the dust off the backpack, I found it a little heavy. When I opened it, it was full of all kinds of things including the handbag that I had received at my wedding, an old fashioned scarf, and even the slippers that I used to wear constantly for a long time. I was a little embarrassed, and burst into laughter. All the stuff was so worn-out that it should have been thrown away a long time ago. Because of my personality, I would not easily throw things away; I did not dispose of items but put them in the big backpack one by one.

In my heart, too, there are many things that I have not thrown away due to my pride; self-justification, indolence, complacency, idleness, discontent, arrogance, etc. These things occupy much space in my heart, and suddenly pop up to hurt others as well as myself.

Through the ‘backpack incident,’ I threw away all the stuff including unwearable clothing which I had kept for years. Seeing that the closets and drawers had become much cleaner and more organized, I felt very refreshed. I will also purge away all the spiritual dirt away form my mind. By throwing away my old self and organizing my mind according to the Teachings of Heavenly Mother every day, I want to be the temple of the Holy Spirit where Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother, the Savior in this last age can dwell comfortably.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and  you are that temple.

    Amen! Let’s throw away everything that belong to the devil – idleness, discontent, arrogance, etc.
    Let’s only use what is God’s – Love, peace, kindness, gentleness, humility ^^
    Let’s go back heaven as God’s royal princes & princesses!!!

    I have a silmilar experience. When I moved out to a new house I had to sort out a pile of my useless stuff poured out from some boxes which I could not throw away. It was too laborious. I realized that I would be hard to fly to the heaven if I kept useless things- idols, sinful desires etc- heavily in my mind. I should be wise to sweep them away from my mind and not to fill it with them again but fill it with Holy Spirit.
