This morning my devotion was on having stuff and it reminded me of the Veggie Tale, Madam Blueberry, that I watched with our granddaughter Awbrey. Madam Blueberry was never satisfied and always needed more stuff. All the material things she had accumulated did not make her happy so she continued to buy more stuff until one day she realized that all she needed was God and He would take care of her. How many times have we gone out and brought things just to have what our friend/neighbor has?
“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be give to you as well. Matthew 6:28-33
