Then Abraham rose from beside his dead wife and spoke to the Hittites. He said, “I am a foreigner and stranger among you. Sell me some property for a burial site here so I can bury my dead.”

Genesis 23:3-4. 

Abraham at this time had lived for not less than a period of 62 years in Canaan after God had called him at the age of 75 years. Yet, he owned no property of his own where he could bury his dead wife, Sarah. 

The implication of this to you as a disciple of Christ is that no matter how long you might have lived in this world and no matter how prosperous the Lord has made you to become; you must know that this world is not your home, you are but a pilgrim on earth.  

Therefore, conduct yourself throughout the time of your stay here in fear, looking forward to the city with foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God. Over there, your inheritance which can never perish, spoil or fade is reserved for you.  

May the Lord God Almighty help you not to get yourself entangled with the affairs of this present world and forfeit your heavenly home. Good morning and do have a wonderful day. 

Your brother,
