“In economics, needs are defined as goods or services that are required and wants are defined as goods or services that are not necessary but that we desire or wish for.”
There’s nothing wrong with wanting things but there is something wrong with confusing your wants with your needs and turning your wants (desires) into needs. God recognizes that we have wants and the bible does not discourage us from wanting things. Our heavenly Father doesn’t want us to desire things like the world does, which means we shouldn’t be desperate for things. Contentment is key.
