Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don’t have. Just dreaming about nice things is meaningless—like chasing the wind. (Ecclesiastes 6:9 NLT)
It’s normal for us to want a better life, a bigger house, a faster car, a better paying job. We often believe these things will make us happier and better off, but that isn’t necessarily the case. Happiness is a choice we have to consciously make, it’s not a function of the cars we drive, house we live in, or how much we can spend. Our happiness depends on how we appreciate the things and people in our lives today, in fact I dare to say that the most important factor in being happy is the quality of relationships we have with those around us and God.
As Humans, all we live our lives for is to find love, acceptance and significance. Acquiring material things will make us very comfortable, but we should never pay for them with our friendships. In today’s text Solomon Said “Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don’t have.”, true happiness comes when we enjoy the things we have with people who love and care for us.
Happiness= Love God + Love your friends + Love you!
