In this day and age, it can be a struggle for some to distinguish between a true need and a want. The basic needs include food, clothing, and a roof over our head. Anything above that should be considered a want. Does God give us some of our wants? Sure—He does. He also says “no” sometimes and we need to recognize and accept His answer.
1. What are your current needs?
2. Would God classify those as a need or as a want?
Challenge: Not everyone has the basic needs. If possible, take action to help someone with a basic need (e.g. give a new coat to someone who doesn’t have one or take a Thanksgiving meal to someone who otherwise wouldn’t have one).
