There are an endless amount of things to buy—from the nicest clothes to the next Apple device. There’s always going to be something to buy, and there will always be ways to spend your money. We want to ever endure in God’s financial blessings, but are we keeping track of our money in the way we should. Are you shorting God, or are you shorting yourself?

We often hear that the love of money is the root of all evil (I Timothy 6:10) However, how often do we allow our materialistic items to rule our day?

It makes sense. You’re still in the first generation of consumer cell phones. Of course you’re going to be addicted to them more than people will be in the future. You’re just—more comfortable with your phone. It makes uncomfortable elevator rides go quicker. Eating alone feels less awkward when scrolling through Facebook posts, as does dinner at the family reunion. For a little while, why is it so bad to join the catatonic masses with eyes-glazed by the flicker of their phones?

Why? Because you’re sacrificing your now for someone else’s yesterday. Everything you see online has already happened.

Wouldn’t eBay be much more awesome if you didn’t have to spend any money but could still get stuff you wanted? You’re young, in desperate need of cool stuff, and broke at the same time. If that’s you, you’re going to like this article. There is a new app called “Yerdle” that allows you to go shopping for free. Quite literally. The catch? You have to give away stuff to get stuff. Here’s how it works:

Download the Yerdle app from the app store or go to http://Yerdle.com.
Dig in your closet, garage, or basement to find cool stuff you just don’t need as much any more.
Add a picture of the item and a description.
Wait for hundreds of imaginary points to start being bid on your item.
Mail the item to the winner—and winner pays shipping.

It’s that easy to get rid of stuff. … Read More »
