Thank you Face Book Pastor
We are bombarded by the media in commercials, ads, books, magazines, etc. with things that will supposedly make our life more complete and content. We are shown how much our lives could be if we to purchase a certain product or item. There are self-help info-commercials and programs to “make our life better”.
We are constantly shown examples of people whose lives seem to be better than ours, or perfect, because they have a certain product or lifestyle which can be obtained and/or enhanced by the purchase of a certain product. We are invited to compare others’ lifestyles to our own, and in so doing the advertisers wish us to be dissatisfied with ourselves. If our satisfaction in life comes from earthly possessions, or on what we own and possess, those possessions can be altered and taken away.
If we base our contentment and satisfaction in life on the Lord Christ Jesus, there is absolutely nothing or no one that can take that away from us.
