Pastor David considers the proper perspective of a child of God in this world – as a pilgrim passing through this land for a short period on a journey towards his permanent home. The child of God does not need to become too attached to this world because we are just journeying through for a short time. Our treasures should be laid up in heaven, not on the earth. Since we are a just a pilgrim here in this world, we should “travel light” to faithfully run with patience the race that’s set before us.
