Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ The people who don’t know God keep trying to get these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them. Matthew 6:31-32
This holiday season is hard for me, but not for the reasons you may think. It’s because I am—in so many ways—a material girl. I worry about what I wear, what car I drive, even what I serve my family for supper.
Everywhere I look during this time of year I’m inundated by the world’s confirmation that things matter. Sometimes the message is subtle, cloaked to look like I’m spending money so I can spend time. But no matter how it’s presented, the world wants me to spend money instead of time.
