Each year on Black Friday I am shocked by the reports I hear of. People waiting in lines for hours and sometimes days, in order to save a hundred dollars on a television that is going to be old news in a year. People doing prank videos acting like they are cutting in line knowing they will get incredible reactions from the people they cut. You also hear about fights, attempted robberies, crazy threats against workers, etc…
“What fools are they who, for a drop of pleasure, drink a sea of wrath.”
The only one who can satisfy is Christ. And the only one that can bring joy to my heart and those around me is the one who promised 2000 years ago to the Samaritan lady that he could give her eternal water, and that the water if sipped, would make someone never need to drink again.
Do you know this Jesus? Are you satisfied in Him? Do you seek pleasure anywhere else?How foolish it is to seek pleasure in fleeting things when the one who has defeated death offers you eternal peace!
