I joined a “buy nothing ” group on FB, as a reduce, reuse, recycle exercise and found that as I purged my life of things so I cleansed my soul of clutter.
The more you possess, the more you are consumed by the care of things, upgrading and investing in stuff. But the Bible clearly tells us that the only use of all these possessions is to feast our eyes on them! Stuff won’t save your soul, it won’t help you love selflessly or take care of those around you. Stuff makes you selfish. Stuff narrows your vision and blocks your relationship with God.
Take the time to sort out your needs from your wants this week and to be grateful for what you have, holding it lightly in your hands.
