Reflection: Only the satisfied soul can enjoy. This passage seems to indicate that God will sometimes bless with physical riches despite knowing the receiver will not be satisfied, for the soul seeks something other than good.
Application: Feeling like you are missing out on enjoying all that is around you? Maybe you’re focused on the wrong thing. What is the goodness of God around you? What is He seeking for you? Are you in line with it?
Prayer: God, Your goodness knows no bounds. Help us to seek Your goodness, seek Your face. For only then will we be able to enjoy that with which You have blessed us. Amen.
