Too much buying—how do you stop?

For some people, when it comes to walking into a store, looking around at the merchandise, seeing something they'd like to have, then buying it on impulse, the assumption is that it just happens. And when they've purchased more than they should have—well, that just happens, too.

Just the opposite is true. Moment by moment each of us chooses to be drawn in one direction or another. We make such choices all the time, whether we realize it or not. I'm not talking about a choice between acquiring one material thing or another, but rather choosing to be drawn toward worldly things in general, or toward the things of Spirit, God.
