In church yesterday evening, I heard a couple things that really stuck out:
“Discontentment is like a hole in your cup or bucket. You can keep pouring into it, but you will never have enough.”
“One of the subtle signs of the love of money (or possessions, or stuff) is chronic discontentment.”
While it’s not wrong to be ambitious, it is wrong to be too preoccupied with gaining wealth. It is wrong to love stuff, possessions, and money more than we love God or other people. It is wrong to mix up our priorities by spending more time and money on things that don’t matter than on things that do matter. We should love the Provider more than the provision, the Giver more than the gifts. God will give us enough if we will honor Him with what we have.
