"Nothing on Earth Satisfies"
"We brought nothing into the world, so we can take
nothing out. But, if we
have food and clothes, we will be satisfied with that." (1 Timothy 6:7-8)
Satisfied? That is one thing we are not. We are not satisfied...
We take a vacation of a lifetime.... We satiate ourselves with sun, fun and
good food. But we are not even on the way home before we dread the end of
the trip and begin planning another.
We are not satisfied.
As a child we say, "If only I were a teenager." As a teen we say, If only I
were an adult." As an adult, If only I were married. As a spouse, If only I
We are not satisfied. Contentment is a difficult virtue. Why?
Because there is nothing on earth that can satisfy our deepest longing.
We long to see God. The leaves of life are rustling with the rumor that we
will and we won't be satisfied until we do.
