Our world is full on consumerism.  It isn’t just the stores that feed us this message, it’s everywhere.  More is always better, right?

This affects our churches too.  We need a bigger building. We need a bigger membership roll. We need bigger screens, etc.

In our personal life, we need the best biggest and best phone. Our computers need replacing because they aren’t as cool. Same be true with our cars.

Author Chris Nye wants us to evaluate these things. His book is titled, “Less of More.”

“It seems you can gain the whole world and it still won’t do a thing for your soul.”–Page 39

With our desire for more which is hardly or never enough, Chris Nye contributes to the conversation and challenges us to get back to what Jesus teaches.

“Our phones and technology do not serve us, they worship us.”–Page 97

We live in a world of constant addiction, and always connected to people online. Yet, isolation is so prevalent.

Could having less be helpful? Could having less free you up to serve others in ways you cannot right now? Is our desire for more distracting us from the true treasure, Jesus?

Do I Recommend Less of More

Yes, I do. I give it a 5/5 stars!  It is a worthy book to help us think through our decisions and even our unhappiness.  Could changing our perspective be very helpful. I tend to think so, but I will let you decide for yourself.
