Do we need more?
Are you trapped in the prodigal life? There are so many beautiful, deep thoughts that can come as one studies the parable of the lost "Prodigal" son. One that we often miss is the realization, that the things we think will provide us with happiness, end up being the very things that pull us away from happiness. This is a realization that comes true in the modern world with our "First World Problems are not really problems". We have so much. We have forgotten what problems are. We have so much, yet there is so much depression and anxiety around us. There are around 40 million Americans who struggle with some form of anxiety disorder, according to adaa.org that is nearly 18%. We strive to live out the American dream yet we are still so unsatisfied. All we want is more. This is what the lost son experienced.
Read: Luke 15:11-32
Journal: Why did he leave home? What did he think he would gain? How does this compare to your life? What will help you find true happiness?
Pray: Ask God to start you on a journey toward real fulfillment. Ask God to help you focus on others today rather than yourself. Pray for three people you can treat with an act of kindness today.
Two weeks ago we spent the week talking about setting goals and achieving them. Here are two Journals that could help you with them. I personally use the Performance planner and it works great. I have not used the Self Journal but it also looks like a good option.
