Satisfaction

I have this little app on my phone that displays a different proverb each day. it’s neat, because it will remind me of the importance of receiving daily wisdom from the Word of God. Recently it displayed Proverbs 13:25, which says: The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.

Many years ago, at a 12 step convention, I heard a speaker talk about the “God box” that she tried so often to put things into that were not of God. She tried putting men, drugs and alcohol, all sorts of things that brought momentary satisfaction at a dear price. Her evenings often started in nirvana and ended in jail– or (at the very least) wanting more as she tried to cure the insatiable lust for “feeling good.”

How about you? Are you feeling satisfied? How about partaking of the bread of life? And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. -John 6:35
