After all the hurrahs, we humans own only two things – our story and our inner life. Life can rip everything else from us in a single moment, but not these two priceless treasures. And neither of them can be purchased by MasterCard. I call this the “principle of ownership.” Now, here’s where it gets interesting. Even though we own these two treasures, and nothing can take them from us, we still can’t keep them bottled up within us. They ooze out to those around us whether or not we like it. Their presence permeates the air around us and creates the environment for whatever interaction we have with other humans and determines all that God can achieve through us.
