We did not only sing a rock song by the Rolling Stones, we also sang the theme song to the lives of many people. We also sang the soundtrack to the Book of Ecclesiastes. Ecclesiastes is the private journal of King Solomon. Solomon went on a 40-year journey searching for satisfaction. Did he find any?
No Satisfaction – Journey of Solomon
By Pastor Delbert Young
No Satisfaction, Journey of Solomon
Scriptures: 1 Kings 3:5, 1 Kings 3:9, 1Kings 3:11-13, Ecclesiastes 1:1-2, Ecclesiastes 1:13-14, 1Kings 4:30-34, Ecclesiastes 2:1, 1 Kings 11:3, Ecclesiastes 2:4-10, Ecclesiastes 12:6-7, Ecclesiastes 12:13
I want you to play a game with me today. Here is how it works. You raise your hand if my question relates to you – humor me, okay? Let’s begin. First, raise your hand if you hate audience participation games where you have to raise your hand. Doesn’t matter because we are going to play the game anyway. Raise your hand if you are not totally SATISFIED with your cell phone coverage. Raise your hand if you are not totally SATISFIED with your current financial picture. Raise your hand if you are not SATISFIED with your body and the way you look. Let’s get a little more serious. Raise your hand if you are not SATISFIED with the job you are doing as a parent. I want you to raise your hand if you are not SATISFIED with the way you have been living your life and the way your life is going. Some of you cannot get any SATISFACTION, can you?
This is interesting. In 1965, there was a person who felt a lot like you do and he wrote a song called “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction.” Who knows who this person is? Mick Jagger. It was over 40 years ago and you would think over a 40-year period he would get some satisfaction, but Mick is in his 60’s now and he is still looking for satisfaction.
