It’s interesting to notice the throw away culture that has developed in the western countries and now is spreading to other nations as well. Most items are used and thrown away without being re-used or re-filled. Some items could be used longer. But we discard them with some product left in them.
The opposite can also be a problem. Holding on and holding things longer can be the sign of a hoarding problem. Keeping items for another few uses or some day when you need it can be a problem. After some time, every room will be full of items you don’t use, but someday “it might come in handy.”
There is a deeper issue here.
“Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Matt 6:26)
