Why Am I Never Satisfied?

A glimpse into Week # 6 of our Why? series curriculum…

God has wired each of us with a spiritual hunger that can only be satisfied by Him. Even when things are going well, there is always a little gnawing feeling within, asking “Is this all there is?” In Ecclesiastes 1:1 -11 & 12:1 -8 we read the bitter ramblings of one of the richest men who ever lived, King Solomon. Although he was enormously wealthy and powerful, and had many women, ultimately he found life meaningless.  The more knowledge he gained, the more he realized that there was nothing new under the sun. The wealthier he became, the more money he wanted. As he aged, he grew depressed at the failings of his once vigorous body. All that he had worked for his entire life seemed like an illusion.

Today there are more than twice as many products and services available as there were ten years ago. But are we twice as happy as we were ten years ago? The pursuit of more only leads to further emptiness. However, there is a different reality and Jesus described it best, “It is more blessed to give, than to receive!”
