Why are we are never satisfied?

Why are we are never satisfied?

Never Right

We always seem to want what others have and to undervalue what we have.Tanning

I remember as a teenager noticing that many white skinned people craved a dark sun tan while those with naturally dark skins were spending money on skin lightening treatments.

Ironing hairPeople with straight hair have it curled while those with naturally curly hair spend ages trying to iron it straight.

People in the city want to live out in the country while many in the country crave the convenience and comfort of city life. I could go on and on but I am sure that you get the point.

It is exactly the same as we think about our vacations. Right now most people in Europe and parts of the US would love to escape from the coldDog in snow with boots and snow into a place with glorious sunshine.

But at the same time many in the Southern hemisphere are longing for cooler weather and would be delighted to spend time frolicking in the snow.

It reminds me of the book of Ecclesiastes in the bible. Summed up in those dismal words in chapter 1 verse 2: “Meaningless! Meaningless!”  says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless!  Everything is meaningless”

Oh what a sad but accurate view of life.

In Ecclesiastes we find the solution in the final chapter where we are reminded that ultimately we will only find real meaning in life when we put God first!

However on a much lower level we can also use our differences to make this life more enjoyable. Here is an area where I have found Christian House Sitters a blessing.

If you are living in a cold place why not enjoy a rent-free vacation somewhere warm and at the same time you could (if you so choose) let someone from a warmer part of the world enjoy a rent-free vacation in your home. That will bless them, bless you and give you the security of knowing that you home and pets are being cared for.
Dog melting

Naturally the same applies the other way around. If you want to enjoy the snow and escape the blazing heat you can do that.

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life why not have a rent-free vacation in the country and if you crave a taste of city life then that can also be arranged.

No Christian House Sitters can’t provide the meaning of life. Only God can do that but we can help you relax, travel the world, enjoy different countries and cultures and all rent-free. We can also help you save money by having someone look after your home and pets while you are away free of charge.

Everyone benefits.

Role Models and Vacations

2 Pastors discuss vacations

I was sent the above a few days ago and it appealed to my rather odd sence of humour.

Sadly it contains more than a grain of truth. I have met many Christians who feel that they need to work 7 days a week and 365 days a year. They have the very best intentions. They want to serve God and do not want to waste time BUT I have to ask myself if, in the long run, they are actually very effective or indeed if they are really living  in God’s will.

God clearly told us that He rested on the 7th day. I have real difficulty in thinking that God was tired. He rested and by doing that showed that we too need to take a day each week to re-charge our batteries.

Psychological and medical research has clearly demonstrated that people who do not take a regular vacation are prone to more illnesses and are less efficient at work.

If you are interested here are links to just two such articles.

Relax! Vacations Are Good For Your

Health Take Back Vacation

One reason many people do not take a vacation is the cost. But remember Christian House Sitters can help make a dramatic reduction in the cost of your next vacation. We can help you find rent-free accommodation all over the world and we can arrange, if needed, for reliable Christians to look after your home and your pets while you are away again with no cost to you.
