The desire to be or have Something is laborious, causing men to act from a place of ignobility. The need to please people creates compromise, because the flesh cannot be satisfied.
As the need to consume increases, with displeasure building. It will take more indulgence to appease the same appetite. The consumption is addictive, to have something is now equivalent to having Anything.
Anything, as a person dependent on the external validation of others is in effect Everything. Your living is not for God or even for yourself, what you do, say and think is ultimately to serve the whims of others.
What began as an innocent something morphed into anything, then was manipulated to become everything to appease everyone and as a result your uniqueness is neutralized to nothing.
2 Timothy 2:4
No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.
