Be Content by Breaking Free of Materialism
Resist overspending during the holidays!
Holidays reveal the contrast between the world and the Kingdom of God. Consider the advertising messages. You work hard, you deserve this! Go ahead, splurge a little. You only live once. Spoil the children! A well-decorated home and Pinterest-worthy meal are expected if you’re going to host others.
Equating love with what you spend is a trap. God tells us to be content with what we have. In Him, we have riches that money can’t buy. Our inheritance transcends earthly wealth. When you break free from the deceit of materialism, you’ll save money and influence others. So, this holiday season, rejoice, share your love, and watch your budget.
