I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

More is NOT always better!

on September 14, 2015

Society tries to make us believe that having more of everything is a good thing.  If we have more money, more possessions and more power then we will have a better life.   If we have more friends, more intimate relationships, eat more and fill our lives with more activity, we will find happiness.  Really?

What is the result of having MORE of everything?  It leads to more depression, more sickness, more loneliness, more stress, more debt, more broken marriages and families, more unwanted pregnancies, more sexual diseases, more addictions and more teens having serious problems that carry on into their adult years.

Money, possessions and power can’t bring us happiness and it can’t mend all the brokenness in the world.  What we need is MORE love, MORE compassion, MORE kindness.  These are things that money can’t buy yet they have a much higher value.

More CAN be better if we put our priorities in the right place and stop listening to the voice of the world telling us how we should live.  We don’t have to follow the crowd and go in the wrong direction.  We need to learn how to listen to our own inner voice and always do what we know is right.   It isn’t easy being a person of integrity in this fallen world, but we can start being a positive example to other people.
