We all want stuff

It’s the human way.

I have a strong desire to get the things that attract me, and that help me fit in with everyone else. It doesn’t matter what the cost is, or how unreasonable it is to pressurise my parents, I still want the stuff.

I cannot run the risk of being different, or standing out for the wrong reasons. I need the trainers, the jacket, the hairdo, the accessories, so that I am part of the crowd and won’t be picked on for wearing “cheap” stuff.

I’m quite insecure, really, and am not very good at sticking up for the right things, or choosing a reasonable way to behave or live my life. I get pushed around by others and find myself always worrying about how I look or speak.

Its a prison for me, and I don’t know how to get out of it. I seems to want more and more, and I need money badly.

A man who had almost nothing said, “I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full.” How can someone who has nothing, give me everything? He also said, if I live my life in this world the way I want, I will loose it. And if I give up what I want for His sake, I will save it.

JESUS had nothing, yet he was the Lord of the Universe. He says I can trust him, and I will gain everything that lasts forever….
