Davidisms: Less Is More

“Better is the little that the righteous has than the abundance of many wicked” (Psalm 37:16).

Less is more.

It’s a great life lesson I’m learning. I just don’t need as much as I think I do. In fact, there is a freedom in having little.

Think about it. The more you accumulate, the more things you own. And then, the more those things eventually own you. Your possessions require your time and money to be spent on them.

Someone once joked that he didn’t need to purchase a beach house as long as he had friends who owned one! The upkeep here would be on the friendship, not the beach house!

How do Christians combat a culture of consumerism? One simple way is this. Pause and ask yourself, “Do I really need that?”

Most often, the answer is no.

And the same holds true with our words. We don’t need to say so much! Guard your words. The more you speak, the more you can get yourself into trouble.

Less stuff. Less words. And more of Jesus: a good way to live!
