The Variety Bucket
Hostess: Renee Swope
Contributing Writer: Jill Tracey

Variety is a good thing…right? Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries!

The other day my friend Jill and her family stopped at the drive thru and no one could decide what to order. She wanted grilled chicken, her husband wanted fried chicken, and her daughter wanted chicken strips.

So, they decided to order the VARIETY BUCKET and everybody got what they wanted!My friend started thinking about how much variety is available these days. It seems like nobody ever has to give up anything. But, is this GOOD? What about when we're teaching our kids that you don't always get what you want?

It’s not the restaurant’s fault…it's a human desire to get what we want when we want it. So, I have to pursue the path that offers less immediate gratification. God doesn't force it. He simply waits as I try Variety Bucket after Variety Bucket and eventually turn to the ONE THING that truly satisfies!
