When people see us, do they see shiny Jewelry? Money? Clothes? Or do they see Jesus? The real question is, what do we want them to see? Are we okay with looking different for a purpose? Because we are supposed to be set apart from the world as believers. But sometimes, we find ourselves competing to have more instead of learning to be content with what we have. Our happiness is often based solely on "material things," such as money, fame, and cars. We have to ask ourselves, are we serving the TRUE and living God or living for the temporal idols in our lives.
We should find our happiness in Jesus, not the things we have. Yes, it's great to have nice things, but we cannot make it our God. It's essential to be mindful of whom we serve and what we serve. 1 Timothy 6:9-10 KJV says, But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
