Always Looking For More

Have you ever finished a giant bowl of delicious pasta with homemade pesto and thought, "what else can I eat?"

Maybe I'm the only one who does that. Maybe.

Doesn't it seem like we're almost programmed to seek more? What are you craving? Attention? Food? Love? Money? Stuff?

Maybe we are programmed to crave. But what are we to crave? Maybe it is not what but who. Could it be that God programmed within each of us a longing for Himself? Did Jesus not say He is the Living Water? The Bread of Life? Perhaps in today's terms, it would be "I'm the all-you-can-eat smorgasboard, minus the artery-clogging cholesterol" and "I am more satisfying than the new, roomy SUV with multiple cup holders."

When we pursue a relationship with God, made possible through his son, Jesus, we get something more fulfilling, more healthy, and more satisfying. And unlike the plate that eventually will be empty, Jesus fills us up with what is eternally complete.

Take some time to evaluate where you seek satisfaction and comfort. Is it really working?
