You eat your heart out with the best buffet in town. After a few hours, you are hungry again.
You go on a long vacation out of town. On your way back, you are already planning your next vacation.
You enter into a romantic relationship and try to nurture it for years only to wake up one day, heartbroken and pondering on how you can bounce back.
Yes, the world can fill a need for a while but only God can satisfy for a lifetime.
The Samaritan Woman at Jacob’s well knew that.
Zacchaeus will attest to it.
The rich young man learned his lesson.
And yours truly? Years ago, as a young man addicted to pornography, and was constantly drunk, I was familiar with the empty promises of the world. I knew how the world can lure you into its arms and then leave you eating the dust by its feet.I can still smell the stench of deception and feel the pain of broken dreams.
My friend, if you are restless, looking for purpose and longing for peace, why don’t you try Jesus?
He alone suffices. He alone satisfies.
Have blessed weekend!
