Why do we always long for more? Fr. Dave Guttmann answers this question:  “Because it is never enough.”  But why exactly is it never enough?  Guttmann goes to explain that nothing in this world can completely fill us or satiate our desires.  In fact, instead of satisfying, things of this world leave us wanting more. This is because we were not made for this world; we were made to seek the eternal Kingdom with our Heavenly Father. Now, every person is unique and everyone experiences this longing in different ways.  We can try to fill this longing with different material means and by constantly seeking a fancier car, new house, new job, or new spouse.  But, at the end of the day, we will only be left searching.  Bottom line:  Only God can fill this longing.  And that is limited for God alone.
