Nothing to Live For

Somebody once said, “Many people have everything to live WITH and nothing to live FOR.”  How true that is. Many wealthy people live hollow, meaningless lives.  They have more than enough possessions to make life comfortable, but they have little purpose in life to make it meaningful.

It takes decades before some people eventually realize that life lived for mere self-indulgence is ultimately an empty life.  A time can come, however, when even the shiniest new car, or the biggest house, or the flashiest jewelry, can’t mask the hollowness of a life without high purpose.

The Bible doesn’t condemn all wealth, and new cars and nice houses are not wrong.  But lasting satisfaction doesn’t come from these things or self-indulgence. On the other hand, people with little to live with may have much to live for.  For example, Jesus’ apostles were not wealthy (Acts 3:6), but their lives had real purpose.

The Scriptures assure us that God can bring purpose into our lives, too.  He can give us something to live for that is missing from the lives of people whose lives are hollow and without purpose, something that can ultimately take you to be with God.
