LIVING SIMPLY TO RECEIVE MORE

Posted by Brett Toney on

I read a blog post this morning from Randy Alcorn, who seems to always have insightful and helpful things to say about how to view money and the things of this world. In his post, he gives six motivators for living more simply, essentially laying out the logic of why it is more blessed to give than to receive—we freely and joyfully give of what the Lord has entrusted to us in the sure hope of receiving the blessing in the New Heavens and Earth.

Here are Alcorn's six reasons:

1. We should live more simply—and give more generously—because Heaven is our home.
2. We should live more simply—and give more generously—because it frees us up and shifts our center of gravity.
3. We should live more simply—and give more generously—because we’re God’s pipeline.
4. We should live more simply—and give more generously—because of the reward we’ll receive in Heaven and the joy it will bring us.
5. We should live more simply—and give more generously—because of the dire spiritual needs of the world.
6. We should live more simply—and give more generously—because of the world’s urgent physical needs.
