Fully Satisfied (2 Timothy 2:22)

Today’s scripture: 2 Timothy 2:22

First, I have to apologize ... Things got a bit hectic, and I missed an entire week of devotionals. I'm back to "normal," and we're back in 2 Timothy. 

When we’re young, we think we’re invincible. We can do anything, try anything, and experience no consequences. And the more we do or the more we have, the more we want.

As we grow older and (we hope) more mature, we realize how wrong we were. We’re not invincible. And every decision—good or bad—has its consequence. Those lusts—sex or alcohol or drugs—we pursued as teens or young adults don’t fulfill us as they did.

There’s a reason for that. They never did fulfill. Only a relationship with the Lord can meet all our needs. And when we pursue godly things—such as righteousness, faith, love, and peace—only then will we be content. We’ll be fully satisfied with what God has given us, never needing or wanting more.
