We learn from the Lord’s lips, that complete happiness does not consist in the abundance of wealth and material possessions.
Our world associates happiness with feelings of self-satisfaction and self-sufficiency.
This week many will be praying to win the lottery so they can “find” happiness. But in the midst of desiring money do we so much as think or thank God for what we have?,Or do we even think of using our earnings in helping the poor. The Lord teaches us that selfishness can never lead to happiness. When we have no regard for God or for our fellow human beings we are as Jesus put it, fools.
We must not fall for into the trap of finding our happiness on material wealth, eating and drinking. So if you win the lotto, see it as the responsibility to be dispensers of God’s gift to the needy. And if you don’t win, no worries- our happiness comes from God not in worldly goods.
