Because it shows appreciation, and appreciation is a form of gratitude. It has been said that where attention goes, energy flows. So if we want a more expensive car or a bigger house, it serves us to take care of the things we have now and show the Divine that we are thankful for what we have already been blessed with. When we give thanks in our words and actions, it puts our attention on abundance instead of lack.
Just as a loving parent grooms a child -brushing their hair and making sure they are clean – our material possessions can also benefit from a little TLC. Neglecting our things is a demonstration that we just don’t care about them all that much. On the other hand, taking good care of our things shows that we are happy to have them in our life and that we want to see them grow. ☀️
