The Tyranny of Things

“First you own things, and then things own you.” I started packing up my apartment this week, picking through letters, keepsakes, and balls of string while my friends are in town visiting over coffee. I REALLY want to be free from the tyranny of this stuff.


“Take care to keep yourselves free from the desire for property; for a man’s life is not made up of the number of things which he has.” (Luke 12:15)

  1. Don,

    Really enjoyed your website and blog. It is amazing how God has worked in your life to touch others. I’m reading a great book by Jack Deere – Surprised by The Voice of God. Hope to see you over the holidays.
