“If a man could half his wishes he would double his Troubles.” —Benjamin Franklin
There is nothing wrong with seeking an easier life. In fact all inventions come from someone who ‘wishes’ something. In fact we read at night by electric light, watch television and talk on our telephones because someone wished he could do that. The problems come when wishing becomes miss directed to the extent of covetousness and discontentment. Let us learn from the words of the apostle Paul in Philippians 4:11,
“I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content.”
"God, let my aspirations to change what I can, not get in Your way of teaching me what I need to learn.
You are loved by God.
