May 07 – True Satisfaction

tfh sunrise

It has been said that our ancestors did without sugar until the 13th century, without coal fires until the 14th century, without butter until the 16th century, without coffee, tea an soap until the 17th century, without gas, matches, electricity or automobiles until the 19th century without radio and T.V. until the 20th century. Now our society has as its highest goal, more and more possessions. But money and materialism cannot satisfy the longings of our souls. Jesus asked “What profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul? The Psalmist tells us that God Himself “satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” A gospel song says it beautifully, “Only Jesus can satisfy your soul. And only he can change your heart and make you whole. He’ll give you peace you never knew, love and joy and heaven too, for only Jesus can satisfy the soul.”
