It’s like cough syrup

Sometimes what we need from the Bible is not the fulfillment of our dream, but the swallowing up of our failed dream in the all-satisfying glory of Christ.

We do not always know the path of deepest joy. But all Scripture is inspired by God to take us there.

Therefore Scripture is worth more than all this world can offer.
-John Piper

It’s not the easiest medicine to swallow, but it may be that our failed dreams are the beginnings of our truest joy in Christ.
