10 Life lessons learned from packing a suitcase

Written by Rod Mundy

Life is like a suitcase—so much depends on what you put into it and how you prepare for the trip.


1
Pack lightly – the less you have, the less you must carry.

Don't carry around those hurts and pains; they only lead to frustration and anger.  Too much of anything can only lead to problems.


2
When your suitcase needs some TLC, get out the duct tape.

If you can't keep it together alone, there is always someone there to stick with you.


3
If at first you don't succeed to get it all in there – re-pack.

Whatever it is, you can almost always do it over the next day.


4
Don't pack what isn't yours.

It just makes the bag too heavy to carry.  Odds are you will only be carrying someone else's junk.


5
Roll, don't fold. You can fit more in the suitcase that way.

Try a different approach to things and you might find more hours in the day and more space to get things done. Fewer wrinkles, too.


6
If you pack all wrong and everything wrinkles...

...not to worry.  A few wrinkles never hurt anyone.  Just ask your grandparents: wrinkles add character.


7
Pack so it doesn't leak. You don't want to get where you're going and realize you're all wet.

Take the time to put those nasty thoughts in a bag and seal them up so they don't leak out.


8
If the wheels no longer work, just drag it.

Some days you just have to pull yourself along, realizing that life is a journey and the road can get bumpy.  There was life before wheels on luggage.


9
When your handle breaks, God will be there to carry life's load with you.

You are not on life's journey alone.


10
Remember that Jesus is the ultimate packing consultant.

As Jesus says, "My yoke is easy and my burden is light."  Let God help you through your day.
