You start out thinking you don't need much in life to make you happy. Just a few things, and that's it.
Then, maybe a few things more.
Before you know it, you have more stuff that you know what to do with. Your closets are full. Your basement, too. You have a three car garage- and there isn't enough room for your cars. You have a storage unit. Maybe two. You're thinking about getting another- or larger, one.
You've got stuff. In fact, you sometimes wonder if you have your stuff- or if your stuff has you. At some point, you may even feel…like a jerk.
But every once in awhile...
I get startled by how much stuff is around me. I get reminded how much of my life revolves around the gathering, storing, protecting and maintaining my stuff. Most of the time, I can ignore this uncomfortable topic and get on with life. This week I can't.
The sermon this week has to do with, "Simplicity." I believe in Simplicity. I wish I was better at accomplishing it. The truth is, finding and maintaining Simplicity can be pretty complex. The (other) truth is, I'm not that good at it.
So this Sunday, the "Stuff Master" is going to talk about, Simplicity. This should be interesting.
