Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”

Luke 12:15

Black Friday!

Are you a die-hard Black Friday shopper? Do you wait until Cyber Monday? Do you like to shop at all?

No matter where you find yourself today, remember that having more “things” will not make you happier. I love shopping as much as the next person, but there is no faster way to bring on discontent than by walking through the mall. I realize how yesterday my clothes are, that my decorating style isn’t a style and I need to update my electronics.

Paul writing to Timothy put it this way: “Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it.” 1 Timothy 6:6-7

This is me preaching to the choir because no one needs to hear this more than me. Thanks for listening in to this personal reminder.
