Just To Impress

Just To Impress

July 2019

“Amazingly, 34% of all home improvement or renovation projects are only started to keep up with a friend, family member, or neighbor. The survey was put together by Wilsonart, a home goods manufacturer, and asked respondents about what motivates them to make changes to their homes.

According to the survey, the average homeowner has spent $3,558 on home improvements or renovations to impress, or one-up, others. It seems that envy among homeowners is very much still a real phenomenon, with 42% of respondents admitting that there is significant competition among their neighbors to have the best house on the street.

All of this behavior can probably be traced back to one universal human feeling: jealousy. In fact, 48% of all respondents said that they have walked into another person’s home and immediately felt jealous about a new renovation or addition.”

One can easily imagine when the heart is weighed by God the envy motivation for labor and achievement is far above 48%.

And I saw that all labor and all achievement
spring from man’s envy of his neighbor.
This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

(Ecclesiastes 4:4)
