when prosperity isn't enough

It has become interestingly sad to witness what can be accomplished when a prosperous people can become convinced that their never-before-imagined level of blessing and comfort is a worthless failure. This is profoundly antibiblical in nature, for it denies the individual the opportunity to exercise thanksgiving in hearts that are humble before their creator and spits in the face of his goodness and grace. Gone are the days when people expressed gratitude for daily bread, now whining for not having the luxuries of self-perceived rights. Should it surprise us that we no longer have the resonance of eternity echo through our pursuit of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

When prosperity isn't enough, where are we to go?
