Are Too Many Choices Really Good For Us?
We are undoubtedly blessed to live in such an abundant nature. Think about the enormous variety of goods available when you stroll down the aisles of your local super market. They're staggering. Fifteen types of deodorant vie for your attention. Twenty-three types of hand soap want you to take them home and suds them up. More varieties of beef, chicken, pork, sausages, veggies, breads... and on and on... call to us: "Choose me!" OK, I'd rather live in a land of abundance than a land of poverty. No doubt. But I do wonder sometimes, what this (over?) abundance does to us.
