Raquel Welch was one of Hollywood’s most famous beauties. She said:

I’d acquired everything I wanted yet I was totally miserable. I thought it peculiar that I’d obtained everything I wanted as a child: wealth, fame, accomplishment in my career. I had beautiful children, a lifestyle that seemed terrific, yet I was totally miserably unhappy. I found it frightening that one could acquire all these things and still be so miserable.

She got what she hungered for and was not blessed or satisfied. Christians are tempted just like everyone else to take our eye off the ball and think that our happiness is in our career. That’s why Christian’s will put time for God into their careers. What happens when an economic downturn or forced retirement brings it to an end? We need the reminder that what we are really hungering and thirsting for will only be ultimately met in Jesus Christ
