The scripture for today, June 6 (6/6), is 1st Timothy 6:6f as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
Still, don’t we all do it? Compare what we own with what our neighbor owns? Work and strive to gain more and more stuff?
A long time ago, a man wrote a book called, How to Want What You Have. He emphasized that, to people who are never content with what they have, happiness is always right around the corner. If we could just buy that object, or get that house, obtain that promotion. But once we get it, we are only satisfied briefly before happiness slips away again, and we decide we would truly be happy if we could buy yet another object, or get yet another house, obtain yet another promotion. And so we live our lives.
Dare to look around today and tell yourself, “I have all I need.”
TITUS: THE ARISTOCRAT was raised in the finest palacia in Antioch a city of elitists who only spoke Latin, not the common Greek. But his father would hardly speak to him. He vowed when he had children someday, he would give them all the attention they desired. It happened as he had hoped. Now he had everything. He became a Christian and Paul sent him to help new congregations. Then one day, he gave up all his wealth. Paul sent him to the barbarian lands of Albania. Perfect FATHER’S DAY gift.
