Having it all

"I Want it all!" proclaimed the button the young man was wearing. All of what? I wondered.

To want only material things like money, fame, physical power, and the like makes us vulnerable to changing conditions, to loss, and to a material view of life that is inherently limited and ultimately unsatisfying. The more materiality we get, the more limitation we get. This is a fact to which the Bible, great literature, and maybe even our own experiences can testify.
