Materialism can be defined as the tendency to consider material possessions and physical comfort as more important than spiritual values. It can cause us to think that the cars we drive, the clothes we wear and money we have define who we are and a lack of these things can sometimes make us feel inadequate.
•
Matthew 6:24 tells us that we can't serve both God and money. It's always amazed me how crazy people can get over paper. Money is nothing but printed sheets of paper and its value changes in each country but we tend to value it more than the blood of Jesus, something that will never lose its power no matter where we go.

Matthew 6:19‭-‬20 says "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal." The treasures we build on earth are temporary but the treasures built in heaven are eternal and no force can destroy them.
•
There's nothing wrong with owning nice things. If God has given them to you then you shall surely enjoy. However, if it gets to the point where you're placing these things above God in your life, it becomes a problem.
•
Luke 12:15 tells us that life isn't measured by how much we own so there's no need to make it a goal to possess as many of these things as we can. Material things don't make our lives valuable and sometimes, we can wven become greedy just to be in possession of these things.
•
For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world (1 John 2:16). From this verse, we can understand that the world can satisfy our flesh but not our spirit. Only the things of God can satisfy our spirit, and this is true and everlasting satisfaction.

Today’s #festivefocus is #gratittude .

Gratitude can reduce materialism. #Materialism is strongly correlated with reduced well-being and increased rates of mental disorder. reduces their ability to appreciate and enjoy the good in life, generates negative emotions. Gratitude helps us savor the good in our lives rather than taking it for granted and yearning for what’s next. .
Cultivating gratitude is a skill. The more regularly you do it the easier and better your results will be. Start small if you must. I try to make it a regular practice by keep just one line per day of gratitude in my journal. Just one small sentence. Swipe to see the simple layout. So start today.

Getting ready for a cold shop day where I will sandblast the surfaces of these to create a patterned surface. After they’re then combined with other materials to create mixed media sculptures. .
.
These are the last pieces from my Brooklyn Arts Fund Grant #experimentalglassblowing @bkartscouncil .
If you missed this year’s deadline, make sure to sign up for their email list so as not to miss it next year! .

Because of the value placed in individual materialistic success in our society, we are surrounded by people primarily interested in getting someting from others. Their attitudes are characteristed by selfishness and a lack of empathy for others.

For more than 10 years, my partner and I haven’t bought each other any presents for Christmas 🎄 or for any holiday! No birthday presents!⁣
⁣
This was challenging at first - having grown up in a home where gift giving was one of the only ways that love was shown. ⁣
⁣
But it has taught me so much about materialism, minimalism, and about what I truly need!⁣
⁣
And has SAVED SO MUCH MONEY! ⁣
⁣
I get a kick out of knowing that we will literally retire sooner because of the presents we didn’t buy each other! 🤯😮
⁣
How awesome is that?!!⁣

Every item we purchase has a source.

Unfortunately we have not demanded enough transparency in our supply chains to know the truths behind our sources.

Every dollar we spend we are making a vote as to what industries and practices we will tolerate and support.

We hold so much power, and our choices matter.

Every. Single. One.

Cherish every moment in life. We can't take materialistic things with us when we perish. The true treasures in life come from traveling, getting to know oneself, enjoying the simple things in life and so on.

New thing I'm doing. I notice a lot of trends in the gun/influencer industry. One being flexing on the poors. It ain't the bow, boys; It's the indian.

Here I can be seen wearing my nods in daylight hours. This serves no purpose other than to show that I have them. What good are nods if you can't show them off??

Don’t buy fast fashion. Christmas is often a time where people treat themselves with clothing. The fast fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world, second only to oil. The textiles are made with horrible pesticides and chemicals. Dyes are contaminating into the oceans, killing and distorting organisms that are very important to humans. Polyester is made from petroleum based products and releases micro plastics into waterways and the air. Try mending your own clothing or buying products from second hand or thrift stores. A store called turn-about is an amazing high- end second hand store in the Peninsula village. If you need to buy something new, try buying from sustainable stores. Fast fashion is far worse than you would imagine for factory workers and the environment, so this Christmas give the gift of a livable future. #fastfashion #fastfashionsucks #fastfashionfacts #environment #environmentallyfriendly #sustainablefashion #sustainability #fashion #fastfashions #stopfastfashion #thetruecost #savetheturtles #savetheplanet🌍 #saveearth #saveourhome #materialistic #consumerism #consumerismsucks #materialism #clothing #ethicalfashion #ethicallymade #turnabout  #thriftedfashion #valuevillage #christmas #microplastics #christmaschallenge #zerowaste #zerowasteliving

Tara Donovan works in collecting massive amounts of often mundane materials and combining them in such as way that they take on an organic almost alive form. I thought of this piece with the snowy weather predicted for today. Stay warm everyone!
