The Desire For More Can Be Destructive

40 Day Spiritual Journey to a More Generous Life
Day 15 - The Desire
For "More" Can Be A Destructive Force To Your Life & Faith

"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.""  (Hebrews 13:5)

I remember the classis line from Oliver Twist when the young orphan boy reach out his bowl and asked, "Please, sir, I want some more."  We live in a society that is constantly wanting "more."  But unlike Oliver who desired more food, we seem to have this unhealthy obsession for more of the latest and greatest possessions that hardly fall into the category of necessity.  The incessant want for more obstructs a life of contentment.
