I have noticed that my entertainment has changed--I listen to cleaner music, I read purer things because my focus is simplified. I think that Christianity is enhanced by a simple life, and I love the Apostle Paul's thoughts on this. Phillipians 4:11-
Prosperity is not a sin, it is a blessing. I am prosperous, but I don't want to live with the constant selfish wants that often accompany increasingly. Slowly I see these dissipating and vanishing from my thoughts. The absence of unwarranted earthly desires leaves room for my mind to be filled with holier things. Living below your means is almost "un-American" now, and I think that living a fulfilled life with less material things and frugality reflects Christ to others. It's a new light for me to shine, that's for sure.
"...for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of both being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me."
