Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. (Proverbs 27:23-24)
The latest highlights and trends instigate people to desire more of what they already own or have. As humans, we want to feel good and satisfied about ourselves. When we earn something that we want, it naturally makes us content. However, sometimes, that happiness can only go for so long. Even the wealthiest of millionaires may experiences their dissatisfaction with what it is going on in their lives, despite the money and assets that they have. On the flip side, those who live modestly in simple, smaller residences and who do not even own many possessions may experience happiness that makes them feel wholesome.
To acquire happiness is not acquiring the latest material items or earning the highest salary. These components are only temporary and can change in the blink of an eye. But God’s love and word is everlasting and permanent. That defines genuine happiness and satisfaction. People tend to want more and more of what they already possess and have, which ensues in greed and the constant need for self-satisfaction. Therefore, abundance and quantity should not be based on materialistic features, but rather in faith and spirit.
May God Bless You All ~
