Wisdom From The Animals: Day 9
The Pink-headed fruit dove is only found in the Indonesian mountain forests of Bali, Sumatra, and Java. Being a child of the 1970-1980s preppy style, I’m rather fond of the pink and green combo. The whole preppy movement was about embracing classic styling in clothes, lifestyle and mindset. A person with status focused on being well connected, attaining a high income and a higher education. That focus translated into wearing particular labels of clothing, driving specific brand cars, and getting accepted into the It schools.
” A heart at peace gives life to the body but envy rots the bones.” Proverbs 14:30
When I was in high school, I sometimes wished that I had what others did. I wanted to fit in. I really needed those Sperry deck siders and Polo shirts. As I’ve grown older, I’d like to say that I don’t get envious but that would be a lie. I do find myself craving the it things of the moment. But I have learned that they don’t bring me lasting peace only an insatiable appetite for more. I find that I’m only content when my heart is satiated with God and my craving for worldly things made out of pink and green fabrics is in check.
