Continuing with our series which is based on inspiring words written by Max Lucado and noted in his book God’s Inspirational Promise, Max shares with us the difference between being satisfied and being content.  I hope that you enjoy his message on contentment.
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 had kids.” …
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.
Father, keep us from being so blinded by possessions we cannot keep that we fail to see the eternal treasure we cannot lose.
