The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1
The Scottish-born naturalist and founder of the Sierra Club, John Muir, once had a conversation with railroad magnate and industrialist E. H. Harriman.
“I’m richer than you are,” declared Muir to the railroad baron.
“And how is that true?” responded Harriman.
“Because you don’t have all you want —and I do. Therefore I am richer than you,” answered Muir.
Well, perhaps these two men were playing word games with one another. We don’t know if either man was truly satisfied with his life, but there's one thing of which I’m certain. Our search for satisfaction will not be found at the end of the rainbow in a pot of gold. It can only be found in Jesus.
What satisfies you today? Is it the things you own? Your relationships? Your job? Ask the Lord to fill you with the source of lasting satisfaction—Himself!
