Shopping–Not My Thing

Several weeks ago, I spent the day with two daughters looking for furniture. As I’m from the generation that buys items expected to last forever, it was way past time. Like many of my clothes, some of my furniture is decades old. I’m not a shopper so that’s why my daughters went with me. They have a good eye for bargains and they love spending my money! I couldn’t help relating this experience to what the Holy Spirit is doing with us. Roll up that faded area rug of anger and replace it with love. Move out that creaky chair of greed and replace it with generosity. Carry away that rundown couch of unforgiveness and replace it with merciful understanding and compassion for others. It’s with some resistance the old familiar and comfortable are replaced, but what joy is the result!

  1. I fully understand, I was raised to get all the life I can out of any thing. Oh what a loving God we have who gave us new life!
