We have way too many people feeling entitled and wanting life easy. If we want to eat then we should have to work. In this life we will have problems. Don’t try to escape from them, confront them. Conquer them and become a better person because of them.
Too many want stuff given to them. They want government handouts, they think parents should continue providing even though they are an adult age and want to be treated and considered adults.
Some feel so entitled that they will steal from businesses and families. It doesn’t matter that the business should be entitled to a profit or that a family member should be entitled to keep their belongings until they want to do something else with it. Their entitlement seems to be all that matters.
Too many want a quick fix. They want things handed to them without any effort. We not only see this with money and stuff but we see it in other areas. They want something as easy as a pill. A pill to help us sleep. A pill that keeps us awake. A pill that gives us energy. A pill that calms our nerves. A pill that calms our children.
As we grow into a nation with this portion of the population growing, our society and economy are being damaged by this mentality.
There is gain with pain. Why can’t people put a little effort into life? When things get tough, we don’t need to try to escape. We can have a friend that will walk through all of life with us and when the problems arise, He will be able to help us through them. Jesus is that friend. Give Him the little problems and He may handle them before they become big. Sometimes we wait to ask for help allowing our problems to become bigger. He will be faithful to help us no matter what problem we have and no matter why we are in the problem even if it is our fault. Just ask Him, he wants to be your friend.
