Never Enough

Posted: October 12, 2009 in Sin

Humans are silly creatures… What they possess is never enough. They are always craving and striving for something more and for something better. They want more possessions, better relationships, a little more money, higher status and popularity, and the list is endless. The human soul is fickle and chases after these things over and over again, consciously or subconsciously. They just want to be happy, so they say, “if only…” If only I could get this job, if only I married this person, if only I was a little better looking, if only I had this leadership role, if only I had a better family background, etc. This is futile thinking and will send the soul into a tizzy.

Why do we have such a hard time being content? We have a small view of Christ. We aren’t satisfied and content in who He is. We don’t see the grace we are given through Christ in his sacrifice for us. If we want to be content and not crave everything that crosses our eyes, we must saturate ourselves in the Glory of Christ and joyfully say, “He is more than enough for my soul!”

“Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.” Philippians 4:11

Christ-satisfied hearts live joyfully inside of God’s will, while dissatisfied hearts fall prey to all kinds of temptations.”

Paul David Tripp, Whiter Than Snow
