Have you ever thought about the fact that we never get satisfied? The richest man on earth I believe keeps looking for means to increase his wealth and ensure that he maintains his status. You will see someone who was earning ten thousand naira/month last year (and of course found a way around managing it), get another job where he is being paid two hundred thousand naira/month still complaining profusely. We never seem to have enough. We always want more. It’s not only Oliver Twist who was never satisfied. Man is on the path of insatiety.
Ecclestiastes 1:7-8» All the rivers run into the sea, Yet the sea is not full; To the place from which the rivers come, There they return again. All things are full of labor; Man cannot express it. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, Nor the ear filled with hearing.
Most humans are leeches. We usually keep seeking for things. Some go to the extent of snatching the little the less privileged have just to make sure the much they have becomes more. Or how do you explain the case of a wealthy man who would ‘use’ others to work for him so that he becomes wealthier and would not even pay them adequately? Or the common cases of people revolving positions of authority amongst themselves- those in the high class? You know it’s easy to say, “I cannot do that when I become rich”. But only one factor can make that possible. That is The God factor.
The one who loves money is never satisfied with money, Nor the one who loves wealth with big profits (Ecclesiastes 5:10). Only lovers of God are truly satisfied.
God is the only one that satisfies. No matter how powerful or rich you are in this life, you will not be satisfied. Especially when God is not in the picture. Having God as the CONSTANT in one’s life make life meaningful.
God is inviting us to come and drink of Him. Jesus is the Living Water and the Bread of life. When He says that whoever drinks of Him will no longer thirst, now that’s satisfaction. Jesus says, “Come!” You don’t need to pay anything. Come with your empty vessels. Let Him fill you till you want no more.
Fill my cup Lord as I lift it up to You today. . .
