People are always seeking fulfillment and satisfaction from the things of this earth. The reason humanity can’t ever find true peace and satisfaction is that nothing on this earth was designed for that. Fulfillment comes in knowing your purpose: “Why am I here?”
We have made idols out of convenience, career, our dreams vs God’s will, happiness. The reason they are idols is that we seek these things first, instead of God first. That’s why so many lives are so shallow and in constant transition, going from one problem to another.
As long as we seek the things of this world to satisfy our souls, we will always come up wanting. The things on this earth: money, influence, houses, cars, etc., were never meant to make our lives or be the goal. They were meant to add to our lives — make them a little more enjoyable.
We have allowed the things of this world to become our main focus. And, really, God is supposed to be our main focus. He is the only One who can give us true purpose, true meaning, true fulfillment in life.
I believe God is attempting to get our attention so we will seek the Giver of all things, and not the things themselves. What or Whom are you seeking?
Just a thought,
