Kate's linkup is live, and we're pondering the word "want" this week.
"This world has nothing for me, and this world has everything.
All that I could want and nothing that I need."
I first heard this song in college and it has not lost its appeal.
Want versus need has been a lesson we have tried to teach our girls from the very beginning. We are still learning it ourselves. The discipline of good decision-making comes from delaying impulse and making rational decisions.
Budgeting money, time, calories, all are tied to thinking past the short-term time frame.
If I don't eat cake tonight, I will reach my fitness goals faster. Is this temporary want worth the long-term results?
Will delayed pleasure be worthwhile? A difficult question posed to our young people. I want to feel loved, but I Need commitment.
Jesus can be "all I want, all I need, everything, everything!" (Lifehouse)
Ps please tell me your linkup number. 😊
