“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly”. (Luke 21:34 NKJV)

We’re restless. There’s something we never quite have, and we try to fill the hole with sex, money, power, learning, new toys, new relationships.

If we are (as the Bible tells us) made for eternity, should we be surprised that we’re never completely content? That which satisfies lies outside ourselves, in other eternal things.

What will really make us happy? Really knowing and serving God, above all, and then putting others before ourselves, as our fellow travellers.
