What belongs to you

You know what belongs to you. Your clothes, books, toys, maybe a dog or gerbil. When you think of these things, you never wonder whom they belong to. You know.

Even more important things belong to you, too. Happiness, health, intelligence are yours, because God gives them to you. A great composer would not be a great composer if he didn't produce music that showed his inspiration and masterful workmanship. In much the same way, God would not be the one, perfect creator without something that expressed His joy and love and strength. You and I are that expression, the way God shows what He is. These good qualities can never be taken from us.

Suppose someone you had never seen before came into your room, took everything out of your drawers and closets, and threw it on the floor. Suppose he said, "This is my room. You must get out." Would you believe him? Would you let him have your room? Of course not, because you'd know he wasn't telling the truth! And your mom or dad would back you up, too.
