The Best is the Enemy of Good

We are always wanting the best. We want the best food, the best relationship, the best career, etc. But is the best what we should be striving for? By wanting the best we are always wanting better and never totally satisfied with what we do have. The dictionary defines best as, 'of the most excellent, effective, or desirable type or quality'. But here, on Earth are we ever going to get the best? It is almost like striving for perfection. Perfection doesn't exist on Earth. It is almost as though the best is to be expected. When you expect something unreachable you are going to be let down. So basically by striving for the best, we are striving for impossibility.

Be satisfied in what The Lord has given us here on Earth and bring His joy and love to people around you. Let's enjoy what we do have.
