Sunday Meditation – Infinite Satisfaction

“A hungry man finds his stomach craving. Give him music or honor and he is hungry still. These are not suitable to his appetite. Give him food and his craving is over. So it is with a man’s soul. Give it honour, profits, and pleasures of the world, and these cannot abate its desire; it craves still. These do not answer the soul’s nature, and therefore cannot meet its needs. Set God before it just once, and let it feed on him; it is satisfied, and its inordinate, dogged appetite after the world is cured. Tasting this manna tramples on the onions of Egypt. God is the true happiness of the soul because he is an eternal good. . . . This all-sufficient, suitable, and eternal God is the saint’s peculiar portion, and therefore causes infinite satisfaction.”
