There is no doubt about it- we are a consumer driven society. And it’s not all bad. It’s fueled innovation and advancement, and created space for everyday people to become exceedingly successful off a great product. But there is a dark side to consumerism- it feeds selfishness, greed, corruption and injustice.
Don’t get me wrong. Jesus has plenty to give us- every day, His Spirit is with us to lead us. Every day, His mercies are new for us. Every day, He generously gives wisdom to all without finding fault. Every day, His grace is sufficient for us. Every day, He gives us our daily bread and forgives us our transgressions. Every day, He is our anchor of hope and prince of Peace. The call to follow Jesus is the call to constantly be receiving new revelations and experiences of His love, power and goodness at work in our lives.
And yet, following Jesus is not just about receiving all He has for us daily, but to daily be giving away from the overflow of what we receive. Today’s video and latest installment in the Healthy You series explores how we can actively contribute and give back in our consumer driven world and the impact that makes not only in our own lives, but in the lives of those around us.
