If you’re ever tired of hearing that less is more, please don’t be because it gives you a much better quality of life. You’ll be amazed how much waste we gather in our lives when you start cleaning out – from your closet to kitchen to the monthly expenses. One of my life nuggets that I want to share with you is to take an inventory of your whole life – I mean every area of your life and do a ‘tummy tuck’ in each area.

Humans are natural hoarders if you ask me and we like to hold on to things even when they are expired. Our wants outweigh our needs and so we go for everything we want especially for many people who have access to get things they want. Even the one that has severe needs, given the opportunity to choose, he/she will go for the things they desire versus what they need. Letting go is not in our DNA but when you finally overcome that, you’ll find a more enriched quality of life than too much quantity which devalues your life.

You can begin to cut the waste in every area of your life including the time you even spend on things that do not make you productive. Always think about quality versus quantity and gather just what you need so you do not throw away so much. Even Jesus cautioned in John 6:12 after feeding the 5000 that the rest of the food be gathered and stored and not thrown to waste.

“And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, “Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost.”

I pray for you this week that the Lord will empower you to be a good steward of the resources He has blessed you with. AMEN!
