The grass is greener where it’s cared for.
Luke 15:11 -31
The younger son believed that things were better on the other side. That’s why he asked for his share of the estate so he could go and explore them.
Changing external environment to satisfy internal needs. It’s so easy to get discontent with our living situation and think the grass is greener somewhere else. The problem is in our own hearts. We do not appreciate the things we have.
When we have the right attitude the grass is green enough. We need to take time to water and nurture what we have.
How to know if you have appreciation for what you have?
Look at your life and see what you’re grateful for. In your conversations with friends do you talk more about problems or things you are grateful for?
Do you put conditions on your happiness? I’d be happy if…
The grass is greener where you water it. The grass is greener where you do your best to improve.
