The richest people in the world are not those who have the most but those who need the least. (Craig Groeschel, pastor)

Groeschel’s statement is contrary to almost everything the world, especially social media, would have us believe. We’re overwhelmed with voices telling us what we really need in order to be successful and happy. In reality, having less of material things is more when it comes to having peace of mind and contentment.

I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. (Philippians 4:11-13)
