Do You Feel Lost in a World that Focuses on Materialistic Values?

We live in a fast-paced society that seems to value business success and material rewards above all else. In this rapidly changing, go-go culture, it’s easy for some people to feel as if they’ve been left behind. All of this can lead people to question the direction our society is going in, and wonder why we focus so much on material rewards, instead of matters of the heart. The truth is that people in the United States live among great wealth, yet although we enjoy a high standard of living in this country, the disparity in income here is growing astronomically. So, if we keep moving towards being a society that only values money and the accumulation of wealth, where does that leave the growing number of people who are suffering economically? These are big questions, and the answers are not easy to look at.

Finding Faith

The truth is that today many people are finding a great need for a faith community to help heal the difficulties of living in a materialistic society. The real questions of life and existence go far beyond the shallow issues of how much money is in a person’s bank account and how many possessions they own. The stark reality of life is that we are only here for a short time, ultimately, and it’s up to each of us to find a spiritual connection in order to give our lives real meaning. It can be with God if you so chose it.

Faith seekers need to have ongoing support from others who are on the same path. That’s why it’s so important for people of faith to meet regularly with others who share their beliefs. If you are feeling lost and separated from the real meaning of your life, reach out and find a faith-based support group to help you find your way. Life needs real meaning, and faith needs constant care and support, so find a group that’s right for you, today.
