The problem with stuff (reblog: Rick Warren)

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need (Matt 6:33). I am not materialistic (though, yes, I do have too much stuff – see my previous post on Learning to live with less…clutter). Like you, I long for food, shelter, clothing, work, friends/family – security. That’s not a problem.  It’s our motivation we need to check against Matthew 16:26 – to keep the right focus! Thanks for this reminder Pastor Rick!  http://purposedriven.com/blogs/dailyhope/index.html?contentid=13184

About verawrites

Progress not perfection - that's my goal. Live and learn - that's my motto. I like to share bits of wisdom and glimmers of insight gleaned on my life journey of 50+ years. My hope is to encourage, perhaps inspire, fellow journeyers. Each of us has something to share. Let's be generous, gracious and compassionate with one another. I am blessed to be a blessing... so are you!
