Pregnant women often have strange cravings at strange times. During her pregnancy with our eldest (Marizanne), Anel often craved coffee grounds! These cravings are usually a sign that the body lacks a certain nutrient. But I know that most of my cravings are not based on a nutrient deficiency, but on what I like and want. The problem is we do not always want what we need or what is best for us. We then often spend much time and energy to get something that has no long-term benefits for us.
What do we crave spiritually? On what spiritual gains do we invest time, money, and energy? We can seek acceptance and affirmation in a busy social life. We sometimes connect our sense of self-worth to the amount of travel adventures and exciting experiences we had – living a great life. Not to mention the fulfilment wealth and popularity seem to promise. After trying all these things, the author of Ecclesiastes concluded: “Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless.” (Ecc 12:8).
Jesus recommends that we should crave the life (abundant and eternal life) that He can give us. (Joh 6:27) Crave to be part of the Kingdom of God and the rest of life will fall into place.
