An American Altar: The god of Stuff

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I really love getting new things, especially when it’s something I’ve wanted for a long time. Some of my fondest Christmas and birthday memories center around some gift I really wanted. These desires, or cravings, have also led many people to sacrifice to the god of stuff – leading to debt, pain, and brokenness. How does God call us to wrestle with the god of Stuff?
