If we look horizontally for people or things to satisfy us, we will have fleeting moments of happiness and peace. People, because all of us are flawed, will disappoint us eventually. Things will only give us pleasure for a short time. We should look vertically for lasting peace, wisdom, satisfaction and joy. Then, we will find more peace with others and we will desire fewer things.
“We don’t seek satisfaction, hoping that God will deliver it. No, we seek God, and the result is satisfaction of heart.” (Paul David Tripp)
“The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.”
