I love this conversation! I just studied a passage in the Bible about this last week! In Luke 12:15 Jesus says, "Life does not consist in the abundance of possessions." This has really challenged me to get rid of the stuff that I have. In fact, I was studying with my friends and was challenged to give away my favorite thing (a courderoy, blue coat) as a symbol that my spiritual relationship with God is more important than my relationship to stuff. It seems silly but it really does feel hard.
Earlier on the show you mentioned the intimacy of sharing with an audience the things you purchase. I believe that where we spend our money reflects our heart and our spiritual mindset. Revealing where we spend our money would therefore be a very intimate and transparent experience, because we are opening up our souls. In the words of Jesus, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" Matthew 6:21
