The other day I asked myself the question, why isn’t a happy home enough?
Healthy children who love you, a spouse that respects and trust you — why can’t that be enough?
The scenario is very familiar: the successful person who gets his dreams but loses his soul or forfeits his most important relationships.
They built a lifestyle of neglecting important relationships in pursuit of a dream.
Why isn’t a happy family satisfying?
Why aren’t we content with what we have when we actually have good stuff?
Why can’t the journey have self-acceptance and healthy pride as defined by God and not a comparison to an ideal or another?
When we search for fulfillment outside of a base or foundation of satisfaction and contentment we aimlessly try to fill our void with fleeting joys.
The devil’s most common temptations are for things we already have.
I sense pursuing a goal from a place of contentness and wholeness makes the journey and the arrival better for us and everyone we love.
Show love- in time and attention this weekend to the people who mean the most to you.
