I GUESS THERE ARE SOME THINGS MONEY CAN’T BUY…

True Story: An acquaintance said she heard someone pounding on her front door… she didn’t say knocking, she said ‘pounding!’

She went to answer it and a determined woman was there who demanded, “Where on greedearth did you get your mail box? I’ve been looking all over for the past 2 days and I can’t find it anywhere! I looked in Menards, Ace Hardware, Home Depot, the craft stores, etc…Where did you get it?!?!”  She sounded angry.

(Excuse me, 2 days? Wow.)

My acquaintance had some bad news to give to this woman. You see, she, by herself, had made her own mail box. She’d built it, painted it, decorated it, etc….

Why does shopping, consuming, and acquiring drive us so strongly? An addiction maybe? May our addictions not drive us this Christmas season…May we take time to ponder the reason for the season…bethlehem
