Man's Life in Australia for Sale Online

I can't remember how I came across this, but here's an extract from the article from the San Francisco chronicle

A painful breakup with his wife has prompted a man to put his entire life — his house, his car, his job, even his friends — up for sale online in an effort to start over.
Ian Usher, a British immigrant to Australia, said Tuesday he would auction everything he owns and more on e-Bay starting June 22.
"On the day it's all sold and settled, I intend to walk out of my front door with my wallet in one pocket and my passport in the other, nothing else at all," Usher says on his Web site.

I find this just incredible and amazing. Really seeing as a Christian I am challenged to do and give everything to God; my heart, my mind, my body, my soul, my time, my talents, my energy, my possessions, my everything. Yet it's just so hard!!! I'm sure I'm not alone, but I fail so often at this. I fail to put God first, I fail to give Him the first say and I fail to give Him my all. I pray that God will take my imperfections and my failings as well as everything else and use them to His purposes.
