What will satisfy?


"Ecclesiastes endures as a work of great literature and a book of great truth because it presents both sides of life on this planet; the promise of pleasures so alluring that we may devote our lives to their pursuit, and then the haunting realization that these pleasures ultimately do not satisfy. God's tantalizing world is too big for us. Made for another home, made for eternity, we finally realize that nothing this side of timeless paradise will quiet the rumors of discontent."

Philip Yancey
