Religious People Spend Less Money and Are Less Impulsive While Shopping — RELEVANT Magazine

I haven’t gotten around to writing about my quest to minimize my clutter…but it’s in the works.  I found this research that shows Christians are living up to Matthew 6:   

Matthew 6:30-32 (ESV)  But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?  Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

  1. Neat! I was just discussing the connected issues of hoarding and gambling with a coworker yesterday; he was saying that while it’s not inevitable, hoarders are more likely to gamble because both activities are similar to a drug addiction–seeking the high, feeling awesome, quick descension from that high, repeat. He said, “they are trying to fill a hole.” Maybe Christians don’t feel compulsive urges as much bc our hole is filled with God. 🙂

    1. Yea, Christians are filled with the Holy Spirit and at peace with God, theoretically not needing the injection of consumerism to feel good. I honestly hoped the gap between religious and non-religious would be greater in the statistics…
