The random thoughts of a Christian parrot I was thinking about my possessions the other day. I don’t really own very much. Dotted around my cage are a couple of bells, a bit of wood for me to gnaw on, four perches, the remnants of a toy that I destroyed several weeks ago, water and food pots, several shed feathers plus the remnants of a succulent chilli. And that’s it. In worldly terms, I don’t really amount to very much. But there again, neither did Jesus. He owned nothing more than the clothes upon His back and the sandals on His feet. But of course, Jesus never came to Earth to amass wealth and possessions. He was here on a mission. And He didn’t want anything to be a distraction to Him.
