The more you have, the more you’re occupied. The less you have, the more free you are. (Mother Teresa)

Have you ever noticed that many people have garages that are so full of stuff there’s no room to park their cars there? Attics, closets, and storage bins are overflowing, too. How much time and effort does it take to care for them? To be free from the tyranny of “things” would allow us to have time and energy to live more productive lives.

Jesus: “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions” (Luke 12:15).
