Choosing God as our master instead of money frees us. It frees us from worry and it frees us to appreciate the blessings we have and to share them. Worry is such a waste. Raise your hand if by worrying you can add a single hour to the length of your life. Therefore, do not worry. God has enscribed you on the palms of his hands. Put yourself in those capable and loving hands and enjoy the ride.

There is so much good news in this story. One piece of good news is that it is time to downsize. Another piece of good news is that it is God who is calling me to live a simplifying life. God is calling me to be a good steward of the good news of Jesus Christ. God is calling me to enjoy being more generous in serving and glorifying God and building up the body of Christ.
