According to experts, once we've reached those levels, we become stressed and unproductive. Even though it "hurts" our brains to deal with clutter, we keep collecting unnecessary possessions.
I have to confess that I'm a "collector," so don't think I'm pointing a finger. But lately I've been asking myself some questions:
- Would my life be more godly and productive without so many possessions?
- Do I own my things or do my things own me?
But do I understand these words of Christ: "Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own." Luke 12:15 (NLT)
