For the past six weeks, our church--Ada Bible Church--has been going through a series of sermons on living a contented and satisfied life during a time when we have a consumer culture. It has produced some significant conversation between super-wife and I.
We are not rich, but we have a significant amount of stuff. It's almost embarrasing to catalog our earthly belongings and then think that we need to have more.
But we've been reminded that the more you have the easier it is to ignore God and what he has done for us. It can distance me from God and as I get older I know that I want no distance in that relationship.
I need to spend more time with this sermon series. Each part is live-streamed and then archived. Each day we get a devotion emailed to us based on the sermon. Here are the links to each sermon. I invite you to check them out.
