What Do You Hunger For? 

A. W. Tozer once said, “we are all the sum total of our hungers.” James Allen in his book, As a Man Thinketh, states that “the soul attracts that which it secretly harbours; that which it loves, and also that whih it fears; it reaches the height of its cherished aspirations; it falls to the level of it’s unchastened desires–and circumstances are the means by which the soul receives its own.” Most all of us want more out of life yet he also said this of us as humans, “men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound.”
Contentment is an important virtue but contentment with our inward state in relation first to our spiritual growth and then our growth as human beings spells inward blindness. You see if we believe we have arrived we will not go any farther because it would be foolish in our eyes to waste time on such things. It can be easy to believe we have arrived when we have not. The key is this, we never arrive. Cultivate this mindset in your spiritual life and your personal growth. It will take you higher and further than you or I can imagine.  So what do you hunger for?
