nothing, as He said in Luke 12:33,
19:21 and Mark 10:21?

-Why is it so many are so
discontent; discontent with partners, discontent with decisions, discontent
with so many things?
Many are discontent because
they are frustrated while still searching for what? Problem is, they are
not sure what they should be looking for. They just know they need to be
They know they are sensing
lack of fulfilment, yet don't understand why, want to know why, are impatient
in finding an answer to their present situation. So they press on with
their lives, looking for clues, trying
to create some order, yet much of the time feeling unsure and insecure
regarding their present position. It all can be so confusing and frustrating:.Psalms
should they do apart from trusting in God?
If it's an education issue,
when lacking a knowledge base that one can have confidence in, then, one
usually has to try this and try that, to see what works, ever searching
for just the right combination so life will go well.
This trial and error method
wastes time and produces heartaches. Witness the large number of broken
hearts from failed relationships, business deals, etc.

-How can I help someone
who has mental illness?
Apart from those under severe
states, those who may be arrogant,
dismissive of others, those hurting others and themselves, are mentally
ill. The way out of this begins with a decision to be different, a decision
to become caring, concerned for others, charitable
and humble, and then taking action to become
that way in all your dealings with others. Know that you indeed have something
that can help another and have a strong desire to use it:.2Timothy
1:7; Proverbs 2:7 "He lays up
sound wisdom for the righteous. He is a buckler to them that walk uprightly"
14:30 "A sound heart is the life of the flesh....."
1:13,14,17 "And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning
all things that are done under heaven. This sore travail hath God given
to the sons of man to be exercised therewith. I have seen all the works
that are done under the sun and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of
spirit...And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly.
I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit" Ecclesiastes
2:17,23,24,26 "Therefore I hated life because the work that is wrought
under the sun is grievous unto me. For all is vanity and vexation of spirit...For
all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief. Yea, his heart taketh
not rest in the night. This is also vanity. There is nothing better for
a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul
enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of
God...For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge
and joy." Ecclesiastes 4:6 "Better
is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and
vexation of spirit."
12:13 "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and
keep his commandments.(or,
'His instruction' so that we can have a proper relationship with Him and
this is the whole duty of man.(original
is the whole man")."
-Who are "the brethren"?
3:32-35 "And the multitude sat about Him and they said unto him, Behold,
your mother and your brethren without seek for you. And He answered them,
saying, Who is My mother, or my brethren? And He looked round about on.them
which sat about Him.and
said, Behold My mother and My brethren! For whosoever shall do.(and/or
be of the attitude to do).the
will of God, the same is My
brother and My sister and mother."
Those hungering for God,
for spiritual answers to implement in life, are brethren, whether in a
church or not. And what
about your neighbour?
