A Life Free of Clutter

I came across an eye opener in my daily devotional the other day. Thanks to Max Lucado for your wise words.

Your heart will be where your treasure is” Matthew 6:21

“The most powerful life is the most simple life. The most powerful life is the life that knows where it’s going, that knows where the source of strength is, and the life that stays free of clutter and happenstance and hurriedness.

Being busy is not a sin. Jesus was busy. Paul was busy. Peter was busy. Nothing of significance is achieved without effort and hard work and weariness. Being busy, in and of itself, is not a sin. But being busy in an endless pursuit of things that leave us empty and hollow and broken inside, that cannot be pleasing to God.

One source of man’s weariness is the pursuit of things that can never satisfy; but which of us has not been caught up in that pursuit at some time in our life? Our passions, possessions, and pride, these are all dead things. When we try to get life out of dead things, the result is only weariness and dissatisfaction.”
