Recently, I watched Minimalism: A Documentary. It changed everything I thought about how so many of us look at material possessions, success and happiness. I knew that God was calling me to live a more minimalist life.
Most minimalists begin by paring down their personal belongings. But it’s not just about getting rid of stuff; it’s about focusing on what matters.
Jesus talks a lot about money in the Bible. How we use our money matters to Jesus. The message we get from our commercial culture is to buy, buy, buy; spend, spend, spend. But we Christians are called to be counter-cultural—because our life’s meaning is not wrapped up in material things. It is through Jesus Christ that our lives have meaning. Minimalism helps us cut through the clutter and the busy-ness to refocus on God, and the aspects of life that truly matter.
