Comparing Lifestyles

Shannon was just sitting in the carpool line, scrolling through her social media, admiring these bloggers’ picture-perfect lives when she realized it was happening again. Her bad attitude was creeping up to the surface.

This wasn’t the first time Shannon had caught herself in this trap.  A few weeks ago, she picked a fight with her husband about their home because she felt like it didn’t match up to what her friends have.  Discontentment only leads to poor financial habits. We shouldn’t compare ourselves to what other have, what we spend our money on, or how we parent our children.

We need to instead remember that contentment with godliness is great gain! God wants you to be joyful about what He has provided, not grumpy.
