Do you collect anything? Coke cans? Teddy bears? Soccer posters? Do they bring you pleasure?
A 66 year old woman in the U.S.A. died when the first floor collapsed and smothered her. Why did it collapse? The stuff she collected and stored upstairs was so heavy, it broke the floor! (http://bit.ly/1ijnegT)
Jesus knows that collecting the wrong stuff can do the same to us: smothering our life and joy and leaving little room for the Holy Spirit.
Is it time to de-clutter your life of junk? materialism, unforgiveness, and other unhelpful stuff. These verses will help!
