We just don't Spring Clean any more! Remember when we used to clean, giving unused items to those who could use them? Vary rarely was anything stored or thrown away. When clothes became so worn that Charities refused them, our mothers would make quilts or wash them over and over for rags (we never bought rags!). We weren't afraid to "give" something away; in fact it made us feel better to know someone could use it. We weren't so selfish "hoarding" everything. We weren't so vain thinking, "I'll be able to fit into this again". And we weren't so "hardened" as to others needs. When we spent these times cleaning, our hearts and minds experienced a re-freshening, new birth experience too. We thought and acted differently. Ecclesiastes 3:6, "...a time to keep, and a time to cast away." Are we so selfish and fearful to share with others that we have to have more storage space? Is that WHY THERE ARE SO MANY STORAGE FACILITIES?
