“Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

Luke 12:15

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.
