More rest, more time, more happiness, more exercise, more food, more drinks, more sex, more intimacy, more fellowship, more friendship, and etc., etc.
Sometimes we as individuals have a lot on our plates and still need or want more, even after we already have what we need to survive.
Think about it, our minds have been intrigued by social media whether it’s on television, newspapers, magazines or even social media websites; with categories of different types of advertisements. Reality check the things that we need the most is our health, nutrition and the values that come, along with the wealth to survive. Those things that we see on the television, social media websites, and magazines.
Makes us feel like we need things that we see celebrities with, but really not realizing that the things that we see aren’t what we need for survival. It’s only a what! As the old phrase goes, “ everything that glitters ain’t gold.” So we should be more mindful and stick those true valuable things, that are more rewarding longevity to us thinking wiser.
We were all given a mind to think, so with that we have the free will to make choices. The choices that we make should be the ones that will place us in comfortable position and not in hardship situation. For example, when being advised to take the high road to the left to avoid whatever traffic that’s delaying or taking place over to the right.
The simple thing will be to take the left turn to avoid the delay. But sometimes we as individuals end up getting caught up in the what’s happening right now and forget about that high road to the left and end up having to go through the delay to the right. It’s not the end of the world when that happens.
It’s just gonna take a longer lesson to be learned with understanding logical thinking process. Logical thinking is the process of observing, analyzing and drawing the conclusions based on those inference. Using facts and evidence to reach a solution for both logic and reasoning during the thought process.
As the Bible speaks about logic. I found a passage from the book of Philippians chapter 2 verse 13. “For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” Our wants aren’t as important as our needs. Remember all our needs are provided, just like a small bird that takes flight. God provides all our needs.
16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
