Be content with what you have. Care for it, and you will be given more.


No. That’s not a quote. It is from my own experience.

You see, much of my life was spent focused on what I didn’t have. I was willing to work hard to acquire things I didn’t have. Sounds noble doesn’t it? The trouble with that thinking is that I never lived in the present. There was always some point in the future when I was planning on living the “good life”.

It was like I’d work really hard and save to buy a new car and be really excited about it for a very short time, then my mind was focused on the next car which would be even faster and sportier so I didn’t change the oil or do maintenance on the car and soon I HAD to buy another car.

The Bible puts it this way: “Happy are the meek - They that hold all their passions and affections evenly balanced. They shall inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5)

The trouble is that we think we have time. We do not.

 

So, my suggestion is to live each day as if it was your last, but plan as though you’ll live forever.
