What Could Be Better In My Life?
Some of that nature helps us to search for God. Most of it betrays us.
The temptation is for us to become covetous, greedy, self-absorbed, selfishly ambitious, and hold on to the belief that the good we have is the best--for anyone and everyone.
One way we respond when we think something good we have is losing its street cred is by pretending that it is better than it really is. Mark records the prophet Isaiah's description of hypocrites in his gospel as:
Ever been found among them?
There is GOOD news, even GREAT news. Well, it is actually the BEST NEWS EVER!
God doesn't leave us where we are. He sent Jesus to show the way out and forward.
A part of that journey is being reconciled to God (Colossians 1:22-23) resulting in many genuine benefits. There are conditions we need to meet: (1) continue stable and steadfast in the faith (like Abraham), and (2) not shift from the hope of the gospel (of Jesus Christ) that we heard.
