“She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.”
Luke 2:7 NLT
Even from birth, Jesus modeled a life of simplicity and humility. Does this mean you should not aspire to possess or enjoy the good things in life? Absolutely not!
But it should be clear that this must not become the purpose of life, the reason for living; unfortunately is a subtle trap, which often is possible fall without realizing it.
When fashion brands, luxury and a life devoted to satisfy the pleasures of the body is what gives meaning to life; is then that has fallen into the trap and lost the way.
In its simplest form, clothing, food and housing exist to serve people; do not let these become complex and pervert, becoming the masters and lords of their lives.
