While we may want more of this or that, deep within we know that things don’t bring happiness. Many have found that the simple life is really what brings joy. Scripture reminds us, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). Take a moment to consider where you place your primary emphasis in life. Take time to examine what is important and whether you are placing time and attention to those people and issues that are truly of importance.
