Addiction and Satisfaction
"I can't get no satisfaction" sang Mick Jagger. When we choose not to get our needs met responsibly, we open ourselves to unrealistic, counter-productive, self-destructive options. Ultimately this is a spiritual disease stemming from rejection of God. When this happens, we experience pain and a longing for relief. Unless God is in our lives, we may fall prey to activities and/or substances that will consume and enslave us as unworthy masters. All substitutes for God only intensify the hunger for meaning we all have. Without God, we're "striving after wind," the point of Ecclesiastes. With God, we have purpose for living and new life to face tomorrow. We have contentment and satisfaction.
