“Living with attitudes of entitlement carries tremendous spiritual costs.
Entitlement numbs us, grounding our sense of scarcity that is completely out of kilter with the abundance of creation. It keeps us looking for more, feeding both consumerism and addiction, and blinds us to the tremendous blessing of being part of the human community and living in a world of miracle.
The true gospel calls us to gratitude and contentment steeped in the graciousness of God.
But too often we find ourselves trapped in cycles of bickering and dissatisfaction, where nothing is ever enough.”
