Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

Yesterday as I was reading Two Kinds of Righteousness by E.W. Kenyon, one quote in particular really stood out to me.
It said, "It is a fact that the boy or girl that finds this thing in the teenage never sows wild oats, has no great urge for the dangerous pleasures of the world. They have something that answers that cry."
A child who finds Jesus, who truly knows Him, won't have any great urge for the pleasures of the world.  WOW! 
Jesus is so fulfilling, His love is so rich!  Those who find Him wont have a great urge for the pleasures of the world because He fulfills their longings.
As I sat in church on Sunday, I was able to observe so many of the children raising their hands and worshiping the Lord.  They are growing up knowing The Creator.  They are growing up satisfied in Christ. 
I thought about college and all of the students who were looking to the world's pleasures to bring them peace.  
I thought about how those who know the Lord don't need those pleasures, because they are already satisfied! 
Christ satisfies us! Once you know the King, once you've seen the light, the world has nothing to offer that can compare.
If a loved one has walked away, rest assured, they will return to the only one who can truly satisfy. The only one who can bring peace.
Start rejoicing now.
