Who do you honestly trust, a friend, an ally, a stranger? We live in a world that showers praise and adoration onto people we only know from a distance. Yet, we withdraw from those closest to us to seek those cheers from the crowd.
Far to often we look at the things around us and seek joy in them. That's not what God wants for us. He wants us to seek Him first and let Him bring to us what we need. It is finding the balance between our wants, needs, and wanting only what we need that is the part based on faith. Envy and covetedness will only fall away when we trust what God will provide. Then we find joy in everyday life.
