This week our simplifying challenge is to focus on where you are storing your treasure. As I read Psalm 49 this morning, I was inspired by the commentary in my study Bible:
- Reading my Bible first thing in the morning. I always am more focused when I fix my eyes on Him.
- Less computer time. I am on the computer to keep my businesses going, but I have set strict hours for myself and when time is up time is up. I want to invest my time more with my kids and family. Completely focused.
- Reevaluating the things I think I need. Material things. We need so little, but want so much. Yet, the more time I spend with God, and the more I fix my eyes on eternity, the less my desire for earthly “stuff.”
- Investing more in people than in things. Going out of my way to share Christ’s love with those around me everyday. Taking the focus off of myself and my own comfort, for others. Even when I don’t feel like it, going out of my way to be a witness for Jesus.
