From our first breath until our last, we have few truly  essential needs. Without oxygen, we would be dead within minutes Our bodies , when tired, require rest. And in bad weather, we must seek shelter. Even though we are needy people, our basic needs are really few.

When it comes to our wants, however, there appears to be no real limit. Indeed, the entire advertising industry is dedicated to expanding our "needs."

Have we been ignoring the words Jesus. Have we actually been failing to nourish our souls while pursuing our own selfish wants? Just as our body needs daily nourishment, so does our spirit.
