The late singer/songwriter Rich Mullins was tired of living a life of luxury. He moved from Nashville to live with the Navajo Nation. He gave his earnings from record sales and tours to the church, and they in turn provided a modest salary for him and used the rest to further the kingdom. I personally don’t have this much faith to live so radically. He gave up many possessions, knowing that God would open the floodgates and provide him with blessings more than his own money could provide.
1. What possessions do you have that would be hard to give up?
2. How would your faith grow if you gave up these possessions?
Challenge: I am definitely not at the point to give up some possessions at this stage of my faith; however, I would like to get there. I think I could is start small and trust God. Look around at what you have and determine where you can start.
