It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. -Matthew 19:24
The other day I was reading the above Scripture and I heard a voice, maybe God, say, “become a minimalist.”
I’ve heard that word thrown around before but wasn’t exactly sure what it meant. And since “the voice” was telling me to becoming one I needed to know exactly what it was asking. So, of course, I looked up the definition of minimalist and this is what it said:
- One who advocates a moderate or conservative approach, action, or policy, as in a political or governmental organization.
- Of, relating to, characteristic of, or in the style of minimalism.
- Being or providing a bare minimum of what is necessary.
I’m pretty sure “the voice” meant #3.
I realize that by attempting to get rid of u-verse last week, I am on the right path. But as I looked around the house, I realized I had a long way to go. So I decided that I am going to listen to “the voice” and start this journey, one room at a time.
I would love to start with the playroom because gosh darn it, if I step on another Lego I might scream. But to be fair to the kids, I am going to start with the basement.
So here starts my journey to becoming a minimalist!
