Wants vs Needs

A list of wants could span the globe…a list of needs is short to see.

We live in a world where there is so much more out there to want. Wanting can go to the extreme fast and cause numerous problems. We have a built-in ability to justify having almost anything. By the time we rest our case, a want becomes a need, or so it seems. Using plastic is spending money one doesn’t have on things one doesn’t need.

Many financial problems result from a confusion of wants vs needs. Many a budget soon fails when wants are misidentified as needs. To be able to set and stick to priorities is crucial to keeping “wants” from spilling over to the “need” list.

To be able to recognize real needs is the first step in identifying “wants.”

A list of wants could span the globe…a list of needs is short to see.

“For we brought nothing into this world…

and it is certain we can carry nothing out.”

1 Timothy 6:7
