unlimited wants....

humans have unlimited wants, this is what we learn in economics... But when we come to think of it..its pretty true.. not onli in the economic point of view,but also to the applications of our lives...we practically will not be satisfied of what we are having...For example, if we have money, we will want more.. if we have a handphone, we want a better want... However, if this goes on .... till the end when you have everything... we will think that everything is useless and pointless... things and surroundings that we are in should be limited...it is only by this that the thing will have a value and we will cherish it.In a more practical sense, and which is also a purpose of me writing this post is...I as a rational human, is also prone to want more and more of something...i really admired my friends in muar...they have youth retreats, camps, concerts, weekly EYM meetings...this are all the things that i miss out... which i am a bit sad n disappointed that i could not make it for all those events because i m in KL..especially the youth retreat... i wanted to go so much but i juz couldnt make it....despite all this things,i realise that i shd treasure what i have in KL...often, the desire's of us wanting more of something..will tend to make us neglect, enjoy and appreaciate what we have here... "The grass on the otherside is always greener"... come to think of it, i shd really really cherish what i have in KL and stop envying those friends and youths in muar..it is a fact that i need to get use to the life in KL because this is gonna be a new chapter n new episode in my life which i need to go through..Look forward n not look back...Btw, last week i ve found a church which is suitable for me to go too ..which is FGA kl.. i was really very impressed by them... they where really man n woman of God...being a pastor at a very young age...the sermon was practical and useful to the youths, despite that they are a very big congregation, they have really good hospitality, which will make me feel warmed n welcomed all the time...i dont feel like a stranger at all!...oops another pretty long post... anyway ... i will be going for badminton with my col mates again tomolo! hurray... and there will be a cell group meeting tomolo nite...think my schdule is packed tomorrow... and i pray that despite everything... God will still be the centre of my life...thanks for ur time reading... haha

unlimited wants.....very true, dan. and i belive it is strongly caused by greed and envy. which shows the gud unlimited wants n the bad of it. u may be admiring him....how wud u noe he mite not be admiring ur life as well?=p. human beings. its so so hard to find a contented one. not even 1, actually. evryone of us must be wanting sumthing in our lives more. usually, the wealthy 1s will admire the less fortunate. but least expected is a tycoon may be admiring something which a pauper has and he doesnt has it. eg: two vehicles were side by side at the traffic light junction. a motorcycle and a mercedes. each with a couple on/in it. the wife on the motorbike wonders: "how wonderful if my hubby is as rich as him, n i can enjoy my destinations in such a posh car". on the other hand, the wife in the mercedes ponders, "how i wish i wud have the chance to be on a bike wif my hubby. so romantic, hugging tight to each other along our journey." get wad i mean?=p...
