Pastor’s Corner: Restless Searching Hearts

By Joe Palmer

Pastor, Fellowship Baptist Church

Ecclesiastes 3:11 says: “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

Unlike most creatures, a human being can think beyond the immediate circumstances to what lies far ahead. When we are young we ask ourselves what we will be when we grow up. When we are working hard to make a living we wonder about how we are going to be able to retire and live in a comfortable way. When we are retired, what do we think of next? If we haven’t already asked the question, we should ask about what is beyond the sunset of our lives.

This ability to think ahead also generates the question, “What is the purpose of life?” Most teenagers ask this question. If no answer can be found, we either kill ourselves, drug ourselves, or choose stubbornly to refuse to ask the question any more. The failure to find the answer to this question is the seed of most of our great discontent.

If you would like to find the answer to this question, or if you would like learn how to give the answer, then plan on joining us on September 8 at Fellowship Baptist Church at 6 p.m. to watch videos of professional Christian counselors who will teach us how to care for people God’s way.

If you would like to talk with me (Pastor Joe Palmer of Fellowship Baptist) about it, email me at joeandsuzypal@yahoo.com.
