A man observed a woman in the grocery store with a 3-year-old girl in her shopping cart. As they passed the cookie section, the little girl asked for cookies and her mother told her no. The little girl immediately began to whine and fuss, and the mother said quietly, "Now Monica, we just have half of the aisles left to go through; don't be upset. It won't be long." Soon they came to the candy aisle, and the little girl began to shout for candy. And when told she couldn't have any, began to cry. The mother said, "There, there, Monica, don't cry--only two more aisles to go, and then we'll be checking out." When they got to the check-out stand, the little girl immediately began to clamor for gum and burst into a terrible tantrum upon discovering there'd be no gum purchased. The mother patiently said, "Monica, we'll be through this check-out stand in 5 minutes and then you can go home and have a nice nap." The man followed them out to the parking lot and stopped the woman to compliment her. "I couldn't help noticing how patient you were with little Monica," he began. Whereupon the mother said, "I'm Monica -- my little girl's name is Tammy.”
“The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.” Psalm 34:10
Even the most powerful grow weak and hungry. Sometimes we are exhausted because we are chasing after the wrong things. Sometimes, we’ve been chasing good things, but not God’s things. Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” Matt. 6:33. Most of us don’t stop the wasted chase until we’re exhausted. We may be chasing a job, a mate, a degree, some person, some position, some recognition, it really doesn’t matter if we’re not seeking the Lord. But, “those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.” He loves His children, but He really loves when we come to see Him!
