I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go —Jeremiah 45:5. This is the firm and immovable secret of the Lord, given to those who trust Him: “I will give your life to you ” What more does a man want than his life? It is the essential thing. “ your life as a prize” means that wherever you may go, even if it is into hell, you will come out with your life and nothing can harm it. (Oswald Chambers)
Being a minimalist means you value yourself more than material things. It means making decisions based on what you need instead of getting everything you want. It does not mean the things you buy are cheap. It means they are something you need, regardless of how much they cost.
