The Word points out that while we work day and night, we are never satisfied:
Ecc 6:7 All the toil of man is for his mouth, yet his appetite is not satisfied.
We can work and try and scrimp and save for a new car, but what happens the following year when a newer model rolls out? It is back to the drawing board, only to slave and save to buy the new car…why because man’s appetite is never satisfied.
The iPhone folks really have this figured out too! The only thing that brings true contentment is Christ and Jesus reminds us not to focus on the earthly junk but rather what’s above.
A good thing to remember when we find our flesh coveting stuff we don’t need.
