SATISFACTION

Many people spend all their lives trying to be satisfied. They tried to find fulfilment in life with cars, clothes, tattoos, body piercing, drugs – whatever they think may make them look like somebody special and finally feel complete and satisfied.

Solomon says in Ecclesiastes that nothing on this earth will ever really fulfil you or fill up that hole inside that makes you keep trying to find happiness in things. A new cell phone may fill you up for a few days, but you’ll feel empty again when the newness wears off. Even the coolest stuff brings only momentary pleasure.

Apart from Jesus, you will never really enjoy your time on earth or the things you’ve been given. It’s all meaningless without the Saviour. Without Jesus, nothing matters and there is no purpose in life. But in Jesus, you can find ultimate meaning, purpose, fulfilment, and satisfaction. So when your heart is aching, your life seems empty, and you feel lost, go to Jesus to be filled up and satisfied. He will not disappoint you.

BUILD GOOD RELATIONSHIPS

We all make mistakes. At some point in time, you will mess up; and the result could be a damaged friendship. When that happens, the first thing you’ve got to do is to be truthful with yourself. Face what you did, swallow your pride, and don’t make excuses – just admit it. You messed up. Whether you meant to or not, it happened. The key to great relationships is being able to work out the stuff that comes between you.

Next, you’ve got to be honest with God. Confess your sin. Tell Him you know you’ve done wrong and that you’re sorry. Ask Him to forgive you. He’ll forgive you before you finish asking. Then ask Him to help you deal with your friend – to help you know what to say and how to make things right.

The hardest part may be facing your friend and admitting that you aren’t perfect, that you blew
it and you’re sorry. Ask for your friend’s forgiveness. A good Christian friend may surprise you and say, “I’ve already forgiven you”.

There are other things that will help you patch up a relationship, too. Walking in true forgiveness and grace, learning to overlook the little stuff, doing your best to love like Jesus, encouraging, supporting, having good times together – all of these things build good relationships and make it easier to work through the rough spots.
