Is that what you really want?

It’s easy to look at someone else’s life, and want what they have. You want their money, their stuff, their marriage, etc. However, I would challenge you with this question…have you ever looked beyond those things?

You don’t know what they have endured. You don’t know what they have sacrificed. You don’t know the level of struggle they have been through. You don’t know everything they gave up, and made it through to get where they are.

They may have given up most of their time to a job they hate in exchange for their money, and stuff. Is that what you really want? They may have lost a child, and the only reason they made through was holding each other up, and that is the reason they have such a strong marriage. Is that what you really want?

If you can’t endure like they have endured then you can’t have what they have. Everybody wants to be blessed, and live the abundant life that God has in store for you (which is not the same as what He has for someone else), and there is nothing wrong with that. Just don’t be envious of someone else’s life when you don’t know the whole story.

Desire what God has for you, not what He has blessed someone else with. And don’t sign up for a blessing that you don’t have the commitment to carry.
