Why Do We Chase Temporary Happiness?

It’s good to dream, and live this life to the fullest. But something that came across my mind recently was.. are we actually chasing temporary happiness too much?

The world is obsessed with money and luxuries. But when we pass away none of these things will come along with us. These things are nice to have and can get us quick goodies that we desire but does it actually give us that security of eternal joy?

We’ll buy cars, houses, clothes, bags, makeup etc but we’ll always eventually just keep on buying more and more, looking for something better to upgrade to.

It’s human nature to want more in life because God has set eternity in our hearts (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

As we go through life, continue to get the things you love but try to remember that these worldly things are only for a moment and not designed to keep you happy forever.

The good news is that there is actually someone who has provided that eternal joy for us! And that is Christ Himself.

John 15:11

These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be made full

John 4:14

Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst

Jesus Christ will always be our eternal source of fullness and joy. Even past beyond our death, He remains with us in eternity. Draw closer to His joy xx
