I’ve asked one of my wise and passionate friend’s, Jonathan Staton, to write a blog about what we truly need in our lives and this is what he had to share.

I love math, and by far this equation is my favorite.  It rules over our lives, its truth cries out louder than any other equation and it is one that we must remind ourselves of daily.  But first, we are missing part of the equation (perhaps something we can do, chase, bring to the table, or even believe), so let us try to figure out what the missing part might be!

1. Money



2. Good deeds

3. Faith

4. Health

5. Nothing

These are a few of the options, nowhere near an exhaustive list, we could choose from.  Do you think you know the answer?  Let’s find out.

Money—Can making your pursuit of Jesus and your pursuit of money lead you to the source of everything? Or will it just be a dead end?  According to a Harris Poll , only 1 out of 3 Americans said they are happy.

Americans are also the wealthiest citizens of any country.  Coincidence?  I think not!  Jesus talks about money and possessions more than hell, telling us to be wise in how we use it, but not to live our lives in the pursuit of possessions (Matthew 6:19-21).  So with this being the case, although He talks about it so much, we will have to rule out money.
