Want- Five Minute Friday

When we 


Need something

Tangible to take home, we are in want

James 4:1-3 "What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures." (NIV)

This has challenged me the past week or so, as I think about the interactions I've observed within different circles. 

We all WANT. 

We all long.

Sometimes we play nice, sometimes we don't.

I'm also reminded of Psalm 23 "The Lord is my shepherd, [a]shall not want."(NASV)

The Good Shepherd provides; not everything, not when and how we WANT it, but there is a provision.

The tangible will one day pass away.

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, but what shall we seek after that cannot, nor will ever rust?


People who need people are the luckiest people of all.
