Do you want more stuff? Possessions are a form of wealth, but they can transition from being useful in their own right to acquisitions for the sake of acquisition, such as status symbols. You can cross a line between having things and your things having you, and they can become a burden that hinders your life. You understand that you can only carry so much weight at one time. Do you understand that this principle applies to all the things you own whether you are carrying them around or not? The Christian life is likened to a race, and you are encouraged to cast aside every weight, even as an athlete carries nothing extra with him in a race.
