“Excess has impaired perspective in America; we are the richest people on Earth, praying to get richer. We’re tangled in unmanageable debt while feeding the machine, because we feel entitled to more.” – Jen Hatmaker, 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess
You guys know all about Jen Hatmaker’s book in which she cut back in seven areas of her life over the course of seven months in order to focus more on Christ and less on stuff. I picked it up for beach reading, and ended up cracking it open before we even made it to the shore. The nugget above comes from page 3. I’m barely into this thing and it’s already so.good. I can’t wait to see what lies ahead!
Have you read the book? What did you think?
