There’s a good kind of discontent and a bad kind of discontent. The good kind motivates people to reach beyond their grasp… to never stop trying, never stop learning, never stop growing, and never stop yearning for the best from ourselves and the best life has to offer. The bad kind is when our longing for more leads to never having enough, never being happy, satisfied or fulfilled. King Solomon had everything anyone could ever want: wisdom, riches, women, possessions, power, an entire kingdom at his disposal. He was the world’s foremost authority on “having it all.” But he advises us that seeking contentment in these things will never be enough. It’s meaningless. It’s like chasing the wind.
What are you chasing? How do you fill in the blank? “If I just had ______ then I’d be content.” Jesus is the the secret of contentment. Nothing and nobody else truly satisfies.
