Proverbs 1:19 - So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
Want for better living, better electronic gadgets, better house, better cars, more pleasures etc... all this is normal human desires. But where do they stop? The only place they stop is at destroying us, making us to lose our soul and our salvation.
One of the most important properties of a Christian is to know his or her needs from his or her wants. Needs are what the Lord always commits to fulfill for those who keep His ways, but wants increases our desires of the flesh; the very thing we have to overcome, which made sin to come into man.
Let us desire more of things from the Heavenly Kingdom and less from the earthly kingdom. We need to learn to be contented in our earthly needs.
