Buy things for their usefulness rather than their status.

Reject anything that is producing an addiction in you.

Develop a habit of giving things away.

Refuse to be propagandized by the custodians of modern gadgetry.

Learn to enjoy things without owning them.

Develop a deeper appreciation for the creation.

Look with a healthy skepticism at all “buy now, pay later” schemes.

Obey Jesus’ instructions about plain, honest speech.

Reject anything that breeds the oppression of others.

Shun anything that distracts you from seeking first the kingdom of God.

May God give you—and me—the courage, the wisdom, the strength always to hold the Kingdom of God as the number one priority of our lives. To do so, is to live in simplicity —Richard Foster, Celebration of Discipline
