Without Jesus, We Will Never Be Content

Without Jesus, We Will Never Be Content

You may not have all that you want but do you have all that you need? The insatiable desire to have more and more things is a sure indication that at the core of your being there is an emptiness that things can never provide. The late multimillionaire, John D. Rockefeller was once asked, “How […]
