When Less is More


When I was 13 I found stamp collecting to be both very satisfying and educational.

Then a distant cousin sent me a HUGE collection he had found somewhere. I was thrilled—at first.

After months of sorting, I got burned out. Eventually I sold my collection. It just wasn’t fun anymore.

More, more, more?

On a side note, do our children really need more and more toys and games? Would they appreciate what they had more if they had less? Do they think they have to have what their friends have?


Do we adults model contentment (Philippians 4:11-13; 1 Timothy 6:6-10; Hebrews 13:5)? Do we teach by word and example that “not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions” (Luke 12:15b)?
