[1 John 2:16] "For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world."
There is an increasing sense today to live up to society's expectations. It could be the guy down the street with the flashy car. It may be the Mom at the parent/teacher conference with her designer fashion purse, perfect makeup, and flawless ensemble. It could be the kid with the new iPhone and every other electronic device made available. However, if your real goal is happiness, there is only one way to true joy. When we begin to seek things of the Father, we find a fulfillment that cannot be matched by anything this world offers. If you find yourself looking for contentment this week, look to the way, the truth, and the life.
