The Burden Of Success

...For unto whomever much is given, of him shall be much required...
                     Luke 12:48b

Have you ever found yourself asking God for more? More money, a promotion on your job, a bigger house, a newer model car. Only to get these things and find that they are just as much a burden as waiting to obtain them.

The above scripture says that the more we are given, the more we are expected to give. I don't know what your take on this is, but here is mine.

The more money you have, the more problems you have-higher taxes, family/friends expecting you to be their personal bank, even distance relatives expecting a handout (just to name a few); the promotion on the job comes with more responsibilities, higher expectations; the house comes with a bigger mortgage and more rooms to clean, and lawn to maintain; the car comes with higher maintanence/service fees, higher note, among other things.

Upon my revelation of this profound knowledge, I have learned to not ask God for more stuff, but the wisdom it takes to be a good steward over what He has already given me, thereby developing contentment with the things I already possess. I have found it to be less stressful and it has given me the opportunity to develop an attitude of gratitude as well as maximize every gift that has been given to me before asking for something else.

What about you? What are your thoughts on this subject? I would love to read them. Be Blessed!

The more money we get the more expenses we have it is the reality of the life. Every success of you requires the better you. With more money and more promotions, the expectations of the people from you will increase. So always ask the overall betterment and success of you from the God instead of asking for more money. Money is not everything.

Everyone wants to be successful in life. People strive to be the best in different field, they have chosen. Being successful is both an honor and responsibility and it takes blood, sweat and tears to be on top. But being successful is not a measurable for us to be happy. We work hard just to have a comfortable life that sometimes we don't have enough time for our family that can cause misunderstanding. Sometimes we forget to be the people who support us from the very beginning because we care only about ourself.
