Pop on over to Sara's blog (Walk slowly, Live wildly) on my sidebar and take a look at her posts on want and satisfaction- some great thoughts to ponder. These are certainly areas I struggle with. When I look at too many blogs or watch the kinds of TV shows she mentions, I have a tendency to want to change the perfectly good things I have in my home and get something new. Then I want to go shopping and spend money thus undermining our goal of paying off our debts! So I really need to be on my guard and limit the blogs I read and the shows I watch.
Phil. 4:11 ....for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am in, therewith to be content.
1 Tim. 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
Heb. 13:5 ....and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
