Some people spend their whole lives searching for the key to life. And many of them never find it.
It’s extremely sad that a growing number of people are choosing suicide as an alternative to living an empty and hopeless life.
It’s soooo awesome that Moses said it thousands of years ago and it’s still the answer today.
“Oh, that you would choose life… You can make this choice by loving the LORD your God, obeying him and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life.”
This is the key to my life. I know that. I have tried filling my life with other stuff as I moved through different phases of my life. I know the lack of contentment that comes from chasing after material belongings like cars and houses.
I know how it feels to being consumed by meaningless rounds of parties and partying friends, trying to fill the void.
I also know the ache that comes from putting my career first before everything else in my life. When I achieved success and recognition at work, my reaction was, “Is this all there is? Why do I feel so empty when my career is going so well?”
All of these worthless, meaningless, empty feelings went away when I committed to put God first in my life. My experience matches up 100% with the advice Moses gives us – God is the key.
I’m so glad I found the key.
I hope you have, too.
I choose you, Abba Father.
