..if someone gets what he wants (not necessarily needs) then in his mind there comes an idea – I can get better than this or we see something more beautiful or more attractive and then we want that.. its simply because our wants and desires are limitless.
Can you imagine what would life be, if God gave us everything we wanted and not necessarily needed?
One word! CHAOS!!
“..the thing you want most is the one thing you can’t have”
The question to ask then is – Do we really need it?
It is an everyday story isn’t it? It sounds all too familiar… we always keep chasing things we want but not necessarily need..
Think about this:
Someone wants a Government Job, a dream house and a relationship with a certain someone
in comparison to
Someone needs a job to keep him going, a house to rest and to feel wanted
We’ll always have wants, but its when we weigh our wants with what’s actually needed.. we are able to see how superficial we can be as individuals – just in order to satisfy ourselves with different things, so that we can match up to our neighbors & friends.
“We buy things we don’t need, with Money we don’t have, To impress people we don’t even like!”
