The Hunger of Self-Satisfaction
Just about every comfort known to man is available to Christians who have been blessed to live in America.
The appetite for satisfaction has been filled. Most have successful careers that provide enough money to purchase cars and homes.
With left-over expendable income, we are satisfied through our collection of livestock, sports trophies and annual family vacation pictures. Man-caves and she-sheds across America are full of various trinkets of the world.
The passion and "hustle-muscle" of Americans has proved itself successful concerning material things. The 'status' longed for has been achieved.
A Few Questions?
Has all of this caused American Christians to lose their hunger for spiritual things?
Is the same emotional energy poured into your own personal witnessing efforts?
Is commitment to the local church family, just as important as the commitment put into other activities?
Do we invest the same amount of money into church missions as we do in our own hobbies?
Has 'personal status' become the idol?
Instead of hungering and thirsting after righteousness, do you always have something to DO and somewhere to GO?
Matthew 5:6 (KJV) Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
