One Priority

One of the blessings of living in an affluent society such as the United States is that we have many options to choose from. We have options for what career to pursue, for the food that we eat, for the luxury items in our homes, and for the friends that we have. We are not stuck with one option, and most of the time that is a good thing.

One of the curses of living in an affluent society is the choices that we have. The result of all these choices is that many of us in the United States are overwhelmed with our lives. We lack the proper tools needed to navigate the thousands of choices that life offers us. We are also ill equipped to deal with the consequences of those choices.

On the outside it appears like we are living the “American Dream”, but on the inside our hearts and minds are cluttered with worry, fear, hopelessness, and envy. Instead of living the full and abundant life that Jesus promised his followers, we live lives of dissatisfaction and desperation.
