In 1969 Peggy Lee won a Grammy Award for her rendition of the song entitled, “Is That All There Is?” The lyrics tell of the disappointment of expectation (circus experience), tragedy (loss of her home in a fire), and love (boyfriend left). The lyrics go on to state the reason for not taking her own life was the expectation of disappointment in that too.

This world offers no hope. Jesus was offered a façade in the wilderness (see Matthew 4:8-10) and chose the greater way. Oh, what fulfillment in this life, and the life after with Jesus. Eternal life is not just longevity but quality.

Think on These Things

Matthew 4:8-10 (NASB)
8. Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; 9. and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” 10. Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.'”
