Pondering the unimportant questions of life here.
I can't afford to buy designer....insert word here (handbag, clothing, furniture, whatever you like). Most of my friends of similar age/generation can't either. But I know Christians who do buy it, mainly those who are younger than me and (maybe) have more disposable income.
I don't really get why people think they need designer stuff. At the moment, it's not affordable for me, but even when I could afford to buy it, I didn't. I think those that have it would probably argue it is better quality and lasts longer than the cheaper stuff does, but it is a lot of extra money to pay and of course there is always going to be a bigger and better version to tempt us next season to part with even more money. Then it becomes a greed thing and about what we want, which I think is a self-absorbed and therefore sinful attitude to have.
But maybe I am missing something and so I'm happy to be presented with the other side of the argument...
