I left my coat at the church, in the pew.

One can take this to mean a few things.

First, one can take this to mean that I simply left my coat out of forgetfulness.

Second, I left something unnecessary- it wasn’t cold, I actually didn’t need it, and so you can think of my having left behind unnecessary things with God.

Third, you can think of it as my having left something with God perpetually- a part of me given to Him that will remain always with Him.

Perhaps so, and perhaps not.

Reveal Thy Light, O Christ.
