In life, we can take the easy option and settle for good, but not great. It's very easy to do, and something that each of us in life will be tempted to do. Settle for the good, but not great.
Settle for good enough.
Settle for nice.
Don't settle. Don't miss what matters. Don't miss what really counts.
What does all this mean, and have to do with the Bible? Listen to what Isaiah says today in 55.
Why do you spend our money on that which is not bread? Why do you labor for that which does not satisfy?
What is bread? What satisfies? The life that is found in God. The life found in Christ. The life that is found by walking faithfully with God.
Don't settle for less that than. That's the good stuff. That's what counts. That's what lasts and what is truly life giving.
The other things? Nope. They are not truly life giving. They may look fun for a while. But they will leave us feeling empty in the end. Or not completed. Or lacking.
Don't settle for them. Don't settle for the stuff of this world. Find the good stuff. The life found in God. The life that truly counts.
Today, don't settle. Today, find that truly life, which is found only in God!
