Top 4 life of purpose

Exploring the difference between a life of purpose…

And a life of stuff…

  1. 14 quotes from Maya Angelou on a life of purpose…
  2. 21 statistics on how much stuff we really have (You’ve got to read this to believe it!)
  3. Do we love God more than our stuff?
  4. The surprising thing we should collect instead of stuff…

This week…links to thoughts from Maya Angelou, Leah Ness, Joshua Becker and Debra Barron…

1. How do we live a purposeful life?

Maya Angelou passed away just over a year ago.

Relevant Magazine compiled 14 amazing inspirational quotes from Maya Angelou on what truly makes a life purposeful…

2. How much stuff do we have?

Who has time to count it all?

Well… somebody has counted….

Joshua Becker has compiled 21 surprising statistics revealing just how much stuff we’ve stuffed into our attics, our garages, our basements and our storage units…

Here’s one of the 21…

We own so much stuff that over the course of our lifetimes, we will spend more than 5 months looking for just the stuff we’ve lost…

You won’t believe these statistics…

Read them on Joshua Becker’s Blog “Becoming Minimalist”…

Then go throw out some of your stuff (I dare you!)

3. Loving our stuff more than God…

We’d never love things more than God, would we?

Not our smartphones or IPad or flat screen TV’s or….

Let’s stop the list right there…

Thinking about the list is getting much too personal and much too convicting.

Besides… my phone beeped…

Did I just get a text message?

Debra Barron points out the final destination of all the things we treasure and wonders why it’s so easy to love them so much…

 

4. What we should collect instead of stuff…

I really like this post from Leah Ness…

She suggests we collect something other than stuff…

She suggests we collect the memories of all the moments in our life that make us declare…

“There’s always something!”

You know the moments…

When the car breaks down…

The basement floods…

You lose your phone… again!

Those are the moments Leah Ness suggests we collect….

What could be God-honoring about remembering the tough times in our life?

Read Leah Ness’ post for her thoughts on how remembering the tough times in a very specific way can grow our faith in God…
