Being a Christian, I was always told material things were bad. As I got older, I realized that material things are not bad. God wants us to have things. God just wants us to give him the glory for what he provides.
My problem was my love of material things took priority of what God was doing in my life. It distracted me from fully functioning as a Christian. Material things were put here for a reason for us to enjoy. We just need to remember who they came from.
We can serve people and enjoy having nice things. We just need to remember to serve God. Martin Luther said that God is in everything. Even the bowl of tomatoe soup we eat with our grilled cheese.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 NIV
