“Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.” (Ecc 5:10)
If only I can have this or that, then I will be satisfied. Have you noticed that the latest and greatest tool or toy from a few years back now no longer has the same appeal?
Consumerism is built on waves of dissatisfaction. We always need to replace the last favorite thing with the next new latest and greatest toy. The same is true for wealth and money in general.
Check out some really wealthy people. Do they look happy to you? If wealth truly made people happy, the more they have, the happier they would be. This is patently not true, so let’s keep our eyes focused on what truly satisfies.
Quick Prayer: Help me to have what truly satisfies as a priority, Lord. Amen.
