So what is abundant living? In John 10:10, Jesus said He came that his followers might have life, and have it abundantly. I believe this abundant life Jesus referred to encompasses many things:
- Responsible spending and financial peace of mind
- Good stewardship of our money, time, talent, and environment
- Shunning materialism and embracing richness in relationships
- A simplified, Christ-like lifestyle with an emphasis on spiritual growth and service
- Full appreciation and enjoyment of each of the many blessings we have been given
As I read through this list, I thought, "This sounds just like what I want my blog--and my LIFE--to be about." Thank you, Tracy! I'm excited to keep reading and learning from these likeminded resources--the Twiggs also have sites on creative frugality and simple celebrations .
