Let’s face it, we live in a society addicted to more. Our homes are 50% larger than they were in the 1970’s. We covet every new electronic gadget. We supersize our happy meals and accumulate more and more stuff. In this podcast, Tony discusses Living with Less.
Scripture: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” –Matthew 6:19-21
“He said to them in reply, “Whoever has two tunics should share with the person who has none. And whoever has food should do likewise.” –Luke 3:11
Quote: “When someone steals another’s clothes, we call them a thief. Should we not give the same name to one who could clothe the naked and does not? The bread in your cupboard belongs to the hungry; the coat unused in your closet belongs to the one who needs it; the shoes rotting in your closet belong to the one who has no shoes; the money which you hoard up belongs to the poor.” ― Saint Basil the Great
“Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.” – Saint Augustine
Reflections: Do you find yourself accumulating stuff that you don’t really need? Is it difficult for you to donate things that you are no longer using? Do you find yourself attached to things and not people?
