I had to stop by a store this afternoon in the big Westfield mall down the street. I hadn’t been in a mall in a long while. Maybe that was the first time this year, come to think of it.
As I made my way in and out of the place, the colors, sounds, and multitude of people all had me wondering, What’s the point?” It’s all about selling stuff.
My simple thought on this matter today is, RESIST. Resist materialism; resist people trying to sell you things you’re not interested in; resist the urge to buy, just because.
Going to such places is perfectly fine. But don’t give in to the bells. whistles, and pretty lights.
