In a world…
McDonald’s, Burker King, Hardees, Wendy’s… So many choices.
Walmart, Target, J. C. Pennys, Kohl’s… So many choices.
CNN, Fox, MSNBC, so many choices.
Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, then all the countless mix and matches… So many choices.
So I’m not going to go on. I bet you can see where I’m going? So many things to choose from. If we don’t like one price. We can change. If we don’t like service we can change. If we don’t like a flavor, a person, a place , a… Whatever.. We can change our minds and pick something more satisfying.
No wonder our nation begs for a leader to satisfy their needs. Because we can barely make up our own mind. We are not ever satisfied with what we have.
I think of the generation before us. They were satisfied with just a potato for a meal. Yet, we struggle every night to choose which kind of vegetables to pick,which meat to pull out the freezer, which kind of dessert to finish up the meal. We are so blessed. Yet, we are not satisfied with what we have.
As Thanksgiving meal and black Friday sales are wrapping up. I have been thinking how greedy we all are. How selfish and stubborn! (Not all of us). We once were a nation that cared about other people. (Now some do). But, it seems, lately things just keep getting worse and worse. People hurting each other over an item. People not really being thankful for the meal that they had the day before.
No one seems satisfied. They want more, better, something different.
We need to learn to be satisfied with what we have. See with different eyes. If something were to happen in this country , I’m not sure many could survive it.
Truly, this country really needs God. We need to be content in Him. Only He satisfies. Seek Him while He can be found.
“But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.” 1Timothy 6-8
