If we know that the Lord is the only One who can fill us, why do we look for other things to fill us?


This is the question we were asked last night in the home meeting, and it is a very good one – why do we still seek after many other things when we clearly know from the Bible that only God can satisfy us? Why do we still run to other things and try to find satisfaction in so many things in the world, or even sports, TV, internet, entertainment, games, movies, etc – when we have tasted that the Lord is good and only He satisfies? We are all like this – even as believers, though we enjoy the Lord and we love Him, we know that He is the Only One who can Fill Us and Satisfy Us, we still have other things that we try to find delight in. Why? I think this question boils down to another question, which believers and unbelievers alike have asked themselves and have asked others,

Why did God put TWO trees in the garden of Eden? Why didn’t He just put the tree of life and told man to eat of it?

What is the answer to this question? Read it via our article at,
