(Romans 12:2) Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
The past few days I come to realize that we, people have so much to want in life. We want the new released phone in the market, the 40 inches wide LED TV, the newest gaming console or even the hair styles celebrities have been trying to put on trend. We always want what the others have that it turns out some people aim to work to fulfill those wants regardless first its needs. Some would even have the guts to display wealth knowing deep inside she’s already broke and in debt. Isn’t it awful to think that we strive so much in life because of envy and greed?
“We work to live. We don’t live to work.” quoted by a certain person who values life. We were not born to work till we die. Work is made only for living. Balance the time, it’s precious we should make a life out of it. This may seem very simple to adhere but look around you, often time people bury their time for work having ample time to take rest or even get to bond with their family because even their weekends were usually occupied. The reason behind it?
It varies. Some would say, it is to support her children’s educational needs, his sons wish to have his own VR, to buy a new car, to buy that signature bag as a gift to oneself, to save more money in the bank and the list goes on…
You know what, their reasons are sensible because even I have my own wants and needs, we all have but what I’m trying to say is all those things that we were trying to achieve may come in TIME, what people have to keep in mind not only today but must be always is the value of CONTENTMENT and ACCEPTANCE of what we have in the meantime.
We both know why. Contentment gives us the feeling of satisfaction whether on little or great things. When a person is contented, he/she are not only contented with things but also with its other half, everything is enough for them and there is no room for wanting so much in life. Acceptance lets you free from envy, and would surely make you work with grace and peace of mind. So why stress yourself from working so hard.
All things will fall into right places in the right time. I don’t see any reason to rush into things. Is it because of the saying “Life is short”? They say it’s short because there is no exact end for everybody why don’t we just live life to the fullest then Trust God’s plan and just live life. He has so much for you and all you have to do is to have faith in him and do your thing. Don’t stress out too much. Give yourself a break.
