What are you seeking today? Is it worth having? Will it last forever? Or will it leave you feeling empty handed some day in the future?
Jesus Christ taught his followers to seek spiritual understanding above all else. To not get lulled into believing temporal riches or earthly joys could bring eternal happiness. They don’t. The riches of heaven, or a spiritual understanding of God’s Truth, is what brings real happiness and joy that lasts forever, he taught in different ways.
He said, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!” (Matt. 13:45, NLT).
Seek what is most important. Seek spiritual understanding! Seek the pearl of great price. It will not leave you feeling empty-handed at some remote time. It will set you up for the happiest, healthiest existence you could ever have—living your eternal spiritual life with God.
