The Right Stuff
It’s easy to talk about what we shouldn’t have, what we shouldn’t do and what we don’t really need. But as we try and take out what we don’t need in our lives, how do we figure out what belongs in our lives? What does God want from us? This week we look at how to discern the Right Stuff.
It used to be “You are what you eat,” but nowadays it’s more like “You are what you own.” As a culture we are overwhelmed with messages telling us that we are defined by our stuff. And, while in our hearts we know it’s not true, we still find ourselves lingering over the seasonal catalogs that fill our mailboxes or the latest Cyber Monday deals online. As we head into the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, let’s turn our focus to desiring more of Christ. Not more stuff.
