Christianity Today.com has a decent website. On their website is a page labeled Men of Intregrity.net. This week’s theme is ‘Discover the More in Less’ (Comparing and coveting crowds out contentment.)
Their prayer for the week is “Lord, keep me from accumulating things just to fill a void in my life that only You can fill.”
That is so very true. I have seen this in my own life, many times. I’ve gone out and bought many things I really didn’t need. Somehow I thought that buying new things would make me feel better, but that wasn’t the case. ‘New things’ took up my time and kept me from taking on the problems at hand. I used them as a distraction; instead of facing problems.
