Mom’s friend handed a piece of candy to mom’s daughter.
The girl didn’t say anything, so her mother said, “What do you say?”
The girl said, “Do you have any more?”
Most of the time I think life is all about “me.”
And it’s aggravating when someone challenges and corrects me.
Andy Stanley (North Point) did this to me in his message “Careful What You Want For.”
Give Me Candy
What do you want?
You want your way.
You want to do what you want to do.
You want it now.
Make Me Happy
We want unending pleasure.
But is this really what we want?
Is there such a thing as too much of “I want” to the point where it becomes ho-hum, yet controls our life?
What if what we want isn’t good for us?
What is it that we want, that we sense, but have enough of?
Happiness Is …
An intimate relationship.
Something far beyond physical.
An absence of selfishness
Something fulfilled only by Christ Jesus.
Solomon wrote: Respect God! This is the first lesson in wisdom.
Know God! This is intelligence. Proverbs 9:10
This is how to get what you really want (now).
