Ryan and I have been on a mission for about 2 years now.  We want to be content with less, to free ourselves of want and debt so we can give more freely.  We’ve changed our spending habits, cut up all our credit cards, and changed our attitude towards stuff in a dramatic measure to help us eventually achieve this goal.

But is this what we really want?

I’m sure it is.  We get on the right track, get our minds on the same wave, and feel this invisible momentum that keeps us keepin’ on in the direction we’re headed.  The good one, the one that’s goal is to give God the glory.

But, then, without even feeling the jolt, we’re derailed.  How long have we been running the wrong way? Lost focus?  Forgotten what we were supposed to be doing?  Or maybe remembered, but chose to ignore it so we could have, have, have.

Then Ann Voskamp reminded me today – 

No one tells you that wealth numbs you to life and consumerism callouses your soul to the sacred.
Or maybe Someone did: “”It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:25 NIV)
