Scriptures: 1 Chronicles 29:1-13, Haggai, 2:8 Deuteronomy 8:18
“Stuff” is the stuff the world thinks life is made of. We all have “stuff.” We see it, want it buy it, insure it, display it, and measure our worth by how much we have of it. You buy a house and then you stuff that house with stuff. Comedian George Carlin said that a house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it. We build our lives around getting stuff only to die and leave our stuff behind for our kids to fight over or for a complete stranger to take over. Wars are fought over stuff. Marriages disintegrate fighting over stuff. Children are neglected because parents are too busy getting stuff.
