When to Walk Away

I might be a gambler. If I was a contestant on Deal or No Deal I would probably open one too many cases. One good find at a garage sale and I can't wait until the next one. I am on a quest for clothes for my growing six-year-old and Legos at the annual Lutheran Church rummage sale this Friday. I may even find a copy of The Lutheran magazine in the free box. (They have the best crossword puzzles!) I just read in the paper that a church in Olympia (twenty miles away) is having their rummage sale this weekend. I went last year and snagged my find of the year, a Gap baby blue down jacket for two dollars. I am going on record that I will abstain from the Olympia sale this year. I can't afford the time and energy to do both sales on the morning of the Peacemaker seminar with Ken Sande at Westwood Baptist Church . I trust that God will provide for the needs of my family and satisfy my treasure-seeking desires.

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." Hebrews 13:5 ESV
