Needs Verses Wants

In today’s culture, there is this distorted view of needs versus wants. Needs are pretty basic. Things like a roof over your head, good health, food, and a few others.

Wants are pretty much everything else. People often want the newest consumer product or fad. They want a bigger house in the ” best neighborhood”. They want the newest car model and that list is pretty much too long to write. 

As the saying goes ” you can’t take it with you” yet people continue to get these wants in a hidden hope that it will make things better. In many ways, it’s a false hope. The fact is all of those wants one day will end up in a landfill and then they will have their meeting with The Lord God Almighty. Then the only true need they will have is a wave of eternal peace. Until then it’s a pretty basic choice.  Are you concerned about your needs ( and helping others) or building up a pile full of wants. The choice is up to you.
