We cringe when we hear about the heir who inherited a fortune and squandered it all, or the person who was entrusted to carry on a famous legacy, only to soil the family name in disgrace. Sometimes people can literally be surrounded by things that others only dream of, yet fail to do anything worthwhile with them. Today we see a young man who grew up in the presence of God’s covenant promises, but he chose to mock it and walk away from it all.
Finding Satisfaction that Lasts Forever
There are inner hungers within every human heart that long to be fulfilled. The heart yearns to know, “Who am I? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? Does my life have any real meaning and purpose?” While we may search for answers to these questions in the things of this world, we will always be left empty and unsatisfied. That is because the fulfillment to man’s deepest longings can only be found in Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry.” If you turn to Him, you will discover satisfaction that lasts forever!
