Makin banyak

Dalam hidup ini…

Makin banyak belajar, makin banyak tahu.

Makin banyak tahu, makin bayak kuatir.

Makin banyak kuatir, makin banyak pikiran.

Makin banyak pikiran, makin banyak pekerjaan.

Makin banyak pekerjaan, makin banyak penghasilan.

Makin banyak penghasilan, makin banyak pengeluaran.

Makin banyak pengeluaran, makin banyak makan.

Makin banyak makan, makin banyak penyakit.

Makin banyak penyakit, umur jadi tidak banyak.

Janganlah kamu menjadi hamba uang dan cukupkanlah dirimu dengan apa yang ada padamu.

Ibrani 13:5

The wise quotes above were taken from my trip to Indonesia recently. It beautifully teaches and reminds me how to be content in every situation. The human heart is something that always longs for more. Even if we have everything that makes for a decent and comfortable life, we still yearn for more. To simply put, less is more. A fancy house does not make a happy home. But yet people ask, ‘How come less is more?’
