As I’m typing this, I’m sitting at the airport, waiting for my flight. I look around and I see people with masked faces, walking past me. And yes you guessed it, everyone is carrying a baggage or more. Some have fancy bags while others have a back pack. Some baggages are on wheels. I just saw a man carrying two bags, one in each hand. Some seem to be at ease carrying their baggage, while for some, the baggage seems to be heavy. These baggages will all be set aside when they reach their destination. That’s the hope. Can you imagine carrying these baggages once you reach home? At home, people shed the weight of the heavy baggages they had been carrying around.
Isn’t that how life is? We all carry our share of baggages. Like travellers, we carry our baggages, no matter how heavy or light they are. However, we constantly move towards our destination, our home, where we look forward to getting rid of our baggages and being free.
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18
