Pancakes: What have they to do with God?

You May Have All of God that You Want

BIBLE MEDITATION: By Adrian Rogers
“He that loveth silver shall never be satisfied with silver.” Ecclesiastes 5:10

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
We live in a day that has confused luxuries and necessities. Material things can never bring contentment, for they can never satisfy the deepest need of your heart. Either you can’t get enough of them, or when you get them, you find out they don’t meet your need.

Do you remember the story of the little boy who loved pancakes? One day his mother thought she would satisfy him, so she decided she would cook all the pancakes he wanted. He ate the first ones with relish and the second plate—if not with relish, at least with delight. He ate more, and then some more, and she just kept cooking them. Finally she asked, “Johnny, do you want another pancake?”  He said, “No ma’am. I don’t even want the ones I’ve already had.”

Now that’s the way it is with silver. “He that loveth silver shall never be satisfied with silver.” When you get it all, it doesn’t satisfy, and you want more.

ACTION POINT:
This round world will never fit into your three-cornered heart. There is nothing wrong with material things; they just cannot satisfy the deepest longing of your heart. Your deepest needs will never be met by material things, only by the living God. I don’t know how much of God you have, but you may have all of God that you want.

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.
