The Lord loves it when we hunger and thirst after Him. We live in a age where satisfaction is promised in all sorts of things. We are told to chase our dreams, work hard, save and acquire as much as we can and one day we will reach 'success'. Many people spend their whole lives chasing after these things and find that in the end it only leaves them empty. Jesus tells us to die to ourselves, to carry our cross and to follow him. Understanding early on that Jesus is the only one that can truly satisfy us is a game changer, and will lead to us living lives that are truly fulfilling and truly successful.
Matthew 6:33 'But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.'
Mark 8:35-36 "...For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?..."
