Is the grass really greener on the other side of the hill? Well, that is a good question. Sometimes we wish that we could have a different life. We may think that if only we had more money, fame, and popularity we would be happy. Sometimes we may want to live contrary to what we know to be right. The grass looks greener in someone else's life. And in fact it might be.
But after taking a closer look we may realize that their grass isn't grass at all. Many football, soccer, and baseball stadiums now have something called "turf." It looks a lot like grass but in reality it's not. It's fake, pretend. We may think that living contrary to the commandments of God will bring us happiness. Even though it may look like that from a distance, the truth is, that's nothing but turf.
