ONE HANDFUL LIVING
1. THROW OUT.
Matthew 19:22 But when the young man heard this, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.
2 main reasons we hold on to stuff: FEAR and SENTIMENT.
Overcome fear.... God I trust you to be my provider!
"Overcome" sentiment - Thank you—you served your purpose—Throw out.
2. BUY LESS.
Ps 119:36-37 Give me an eagerness for your laws rather than a love for money! 37 Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word.
3. GIVE MORE.
1 Timothy 6:17 - 19
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.
18 Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. 19 By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.
Are you accumulating on earth what you cannot keep?
Or are you investing in heaven what you cannot lose?
