Hebrews 13:5

Hebrews 13:5, this from Eugene Peterson’s paraphrase in The Message:

“Don’t be obsessed with getting more material things.  Be relaxed with what you have.”

Or more traditionally, from the NIV:

“Keep your lives free of the love of money, and be content with what you have.”

Two thoughts occurred to me:

Seems like something you’d read in a self-help New York Times best seller.  Oh, wait….

All due respect to Dylan, are the times really a changing?
