Last week in bible study we read The Parable of the Rich Fool (Luke 12:13-21) and discussed how the Rich Fool was hoarding all his extra, which Jesus says is foolish. We then took turns sharing what each of us have a tendency to hoard. It was an entertaining discussion to say the least! When it was my turn to share, I talked about my collection of free eyeshadow palettes from Clinique.
Well thanks to a spontaneous sleepover last night, I am happy to report that I’ve finally given away my last eyeshadow palette! That’s right. No more extra eyeshadow cluttering up my make-up drawer! My friend looked genuinely excited to be getting my eyeshadow, which made me all the more excited to give it to her. It really is a great feeling knowing that your extra is going to benefit someone else. I make my friends pinky promise me that they’re going to put it to good use in hopes that it doesn’t just become extra clutter for them.
