Because Christ Jesus Has Made Me His Own
There is dissatisfaction and discontentedness at the root of most of what goes on in this world. We lie because the truth is not sufficient, not suited to our purposes, not what we want at that moment. We fight for power because we feel we don’t have enough. We work for wealth because we don’t have enough. We work for prestige and acceptance from others because we don’t that we as people are enough. We enter relationships and seek to associate with people higher up than us, because we feel we don’t have enough on our own. We work to please others so that we can believe we are worth something. We are constantly trying either to gain more, or prove that we have it all already; very often we are trying to do both simultaneously.
