Why Do You Want What You Want?

People usually want what they want because they think getting it will make them happy.  What if they knew that getting it would just make them want something else?  And what if they knew that they could be happy without getting what they want?

What do we really need in life besides food and covering?  God is generous but our greed spoils it all.  Greed, by the way, has nothing to do with how much you have.  It has to do with how badly you want what you don’t have.

When you live for the sake of Jesus’ love, what you want matters less and less to you.  What matters more and more is what others need.
