Isn’t it amazing that we humans can be miserable even when we have plenty to eat, adequate shelter from the elements, sufficient clothing, and safety?
It is one of the things that seperates us from the beasts of the field and woods.
It should not be downplayed. I suspect it is a reflection of the Imago Dei (image of God) in us and is a reminder that we are meant for more than just filling our bellies, procreating our species, and finding a warm place to bed down for the night.
The ONE THING for today: Do not be quick to assuage the misery in your life–it could be a beacon pointing you to something transcendent, eternal, and incredibly fulfilling.
