Even though I thought I went through EVERYTHING,
they still kept coming
I ended up having to throw away quite a bit of food
as the moths got into more and more of it.
What a waste -
I was REALLY bothered by it!
As it kept going on without me getting control over it, I felt a scripture popping into my heart:
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21
The only reason why I had this moth problem was obviously because I had stored more food than what we were using - yes, I'm confessing here.
Of course, it all came with good intentions,
ya know, saving by buying bigger quantities
getting stuff when it was on sale etc
BUT - the reality was still that I was "storing up where moths were destroying",
having more than I needed to for our daily needs.
And that with trying to tighten our belt more than ever
not only because things are tight
but so we can spare some for Africa.
We recently learned about friends getting robbed.
Thieves broke in and took everything of value in the house.
My heart goes out to them - for sure!
BUT - the reality was that they were "storing up where thieves broke in and stole"
I am not judging about their possessions.
Can we simplify our lives even more?
Think twice before buying unnecessary STUFF?
And store up in a place where the investment is BEST?
NO MOTHS, NO THIEVES!
I WANT TO!!!!!!!
