Can We Talk – Homework Week #2, Day #4

This was a timely lesson for the times in which we live. 1 Timothy 6:6-10 spoke to God’s desires for my finances this morning. After examining these verses under the 5 Ps method, I couldn’t help but conclude that I haven’t been living up to God’s expectations for my life in this area.

Why am I collecting “stuff”? It’s not like I’m building a collection as an investment. Okay, I admit it. The stuff I collect is movies on DVD. These things keep me house-bound in a chair when I should be out walking my dog, playing Frisbee golf or hiking with my family or doing anything else that will help me drop some pounds and get healthy!

This was not where I expected to be convicted, today. God truly does move in mysterious ways.

We’ve had a great discussion about this, and we are going to do something about this right away!
