Yearning for God's Goodness
“My people will be satisfied with My goodness," declares the LORD. Jeremiah 31:14
A friend visited the home of the president of a Central American country. The political leader collected ancient Indian art. Six-foot stone spheres, carved by Aztecs, rested in his garden. My friend marveled at the perfect roundness. That was something satisfying to his soul about sublime roundedness. Humans have a passion for completeness ranging from a resolution of disagreements to the completion of a musical chord. This points to the deeper need for spiritual satisfaction. The human psyche cannot rest until that need is met. The human spirit yearns for God’s goodness, and He promises to satisfy us with it.
