Friends and a Good Time

What a great answer.

You think of the joy that you have experienced when you are with your friends and it’s easy to assume that defines a good life.

To feel comfortable sharing not only your thoughts and feelings but also your life with a friend is an amazing thing. We were created for relationships and so of course relationships and doing the things we love are a central part of a good life.

So, the equation seems fairly straightforward.

If you want a good life, seek after friendships that bring you pleasure.

 
But if we are totally honest, even the best parties, the most incredible adventures and the largest circles of friends leave a portion of our hearts untouched.

We find ourselves thinking true satisfaction lies in the next party, the next adventures, the next relationship, etc.

Consider the danger of equating a good life only with your circumstances. It would mean that every day the “value” of your life would rise or fall dependent on external factors. Shouldn’t there be something more lasting, more stable that gives our lives meaning?

Let’s listen to how one follower of Jesus described genuine and lasting contentment:

“I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:11-13 NLT)

 
Jesus was the vibrant and necessary center of Paul’s life that things like hunger and even homelessness paled in comparison to the goodness of having a relationship with Jesus.

If you are tired of chasing happiness through relationships, experiences or wealth, learn more about God’s promise of a life full of abundance.
