No matter how much we have, it never seems to be enough. In Ecclesiastes 8:10 Solomon observed that those who seek wealth obsessively never find the fulfillment it promises them; Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless. Wealth, while seemingly the answer to all our problems, never provides the promises we hope for. When we look at the timeline of our lives we spend the majority of our short time on earth working for an income and lifestyle that ultimately falls short of making us happy. Seeking God and His perfect plan for our lives is the only thing that brings fulfillment. Let’s not waste any more of our lives pursuing that which does not make us happy.
If all we do is seek happiness, we will never really have it. If our number one priority is to serve God, we will get happiness through it. One of the most profound statements in this video is, “Aim at heaven, you get earth through in. Aim at earth, you get neither.” The less we are concerned about happiness and the more we are concerned about Him, the happier we will be.
