The term “white elephant” is often used at office parties for gift exchange or associated with human failures all around our society. It normally refers to any burdensome possession.
Just a thought, who would desire to have a possession so burdensome, it would wreck at one’s soul? You and I of course! In the second of Ecclesiastes, Solomon tarried to state, “I hated life because the work that was done under the sun was distressing to me”. Most of the Old Testament prophets felt like this delivering the Word of God to insolent people as we find in the first of Nahum. Just one more reason to reveal all things through Christ who strengthens us as recorded in the third of Ephesians. Our tortured souls truly bring us duress. Jesus, the Savior, died so we would not have to hold onto this “wrong gift” forever. We need to accept, buy faith, His burden and yoke, need not be tiresome.
Have the day you are meant to have in Christ alone,
