Who loves pleasure? (we all do?) Read Prov. 21:17. How could loving pleasure make you poor?
It’s difficult to stop with one cookie. We eat till we are full. Pleasure is similar, it leads us on. But it is different because it never fills us. When we pursue pleasure, we can’t find it.
So what makes us poor?
Godliness with contentment is great gain. He who is most content is richest.
Should we enjoy pleasure?
Should we love it?
Should we avoid it?
Pleasure is no longer pleasure if we need more pleasure. Find contentment and enjoy pleasure.
