I know some Christians whose favorite phrase is, “Oh, I could never own something that nice.” It’s weird, but for some reason, we sometimes feel really guilty owning nice things. I’m not sure why and maybe it’s just a preacher’s kid thing, which I am. I think though for some of us it’s because when we didn’t eat our dinner growing up our parents would say, “there are kids starving in Africa that could really use that food you’re wasting.” And somewhere along the way we’ve warped that a little. So now, when it comes to say buying a coat, we hear a little voice in our head say, “Whoa, you really need a $300 coat? There are a lot of kids in Africa that could use that money. Why don’t you just make your own coat at home out of a burlap sack or maybe a barrel with rope suspenders?” On the positive note, pioneering pastors are making strides to bring us into victory over this kind of thinking, as evidenced by the Rolls Royce one minister featured in the news currently drives. Victory is ours, victory is ours.
