We live in a fast paced world that is full of technology and fads that fade quicker than Hammer pants. It is a sad time when your value becomes solely based on what material things you own. I saw it first hand living in Hollywood.
Hollywood Culture is filled with people trying to top one another at every moment possible. Your value is not based on your talents, but on what you have. My house is bigger. My car is faster.
I went to a party in the Hollywood Hills home that is owned by an actor that will remain nameless. As I looked around, I saw the giant pool and hottub and the 14 bedroom house. There were cars that I would never be able to afford. I thought to myself: do you really need all this?
Now, I like having things. There is nothing wrong with having stuff. The problem is that when focus on material things, we start wanting more. We start envying others. Nothing is ever good enough.
I remember when I was a kid, I got skates. I had wanted skates real bad. Then I had my skates. Two weeks later, I wanted a skateboard.
If we focus on material things, nothing is ever enough. When we focus on Jesus, we may not always have everything, but we will always have enough. We may live paycheck to paycheck sometime, but God always provides.
We don’t get filet mignon every night. Sometimes, you have to settle for Frito Chili Pie. Life isn’t about riches. In the Bible it states that it easier for a camel to go through the eye of the needle than a rich man to get into Heaven.
I want the riches that God can give. Don’t live your life based on money and things. Most important, we need to stop worrying about what we don’t have and be thankful for what we do. God Bless You.
