my and mine

      If my time and money and arms and legs are really mine, then using them as I darn well please makes good sense. If they aren’t, it doesn’t.

“The pronouns ‘my’ and ‘mine’ look innocent enough in print, but . . . [t]hey are verbal symptoms of our deep disease.” A. W. Tozer

“You do not belong to yourself. . . . Therefore honor God in your body and your spirit, which are His.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
