We all feel it.
The relentless pull of more.
It affects us in our finances and material possessions. The new car, the upgraded cell phone, or just a bit more space in our home.
The pull compels us in our jobs. Reach for that new promotion, open a new branch of the ministry, or it encourages you to take the risk you really should not.
From the moment we are born, the pull of more affects all of us.
I see it in my parenting, prompting my kids to work a little harder or succeed (in my eyes) a bit more on the sports field.
Unknowingly, unwittingly we are creating achievement addicts.
As we turn our attention to our spiritual lives, the draw of more sucks us in like a black hole envelops stars.
