Reincarnation... not an accurate theological concept for our souls. Christians know that "... man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment..." (Hebrews 9:27). Who we are is not recycled again and again in this universe.

But reincarnation is a concept that can be applied to what we own!

Your organic yard and kitchen waste can be reincarnated as compost. Your old towels and socks can be reincarnated as cleaning rags. Your used paper can be reincarnated as scratch paper or stapled together to become note paper. Or it can be shredded and used as pet bedding or mulch. Even items like aerosol cans and old plastic bottles can find new life through recycling programs.
In fact, most of the items that are in or around your home can be re-used or recycled in some way.

We are called to be good stewards of that which we have been entrusted. When we learn to be creative with what we have, our actions will have a net positive impact our personal lives, our community, and our natural environment. Our thriftiness and resourcefulness will give us a means to better serve others, and a way to express our gratitude for all that our God has given us.

So remember, reincarnation is not for your eternal spirit---but it is for your stuff! Yes!
