Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.
A timely reminder from the Lord Jesus against one of the relentless pressures in this world that desire to want more ‘stuff’. Western culture constantly promotes the idea that we can only validate our existence, find fulfilment, status, purpose and satisfaction by a plethora of material possessions. The message of this Christmas season calls us to be counter-cultural and to aspire to find contentment in simplicity.
