Chasing Carrots

What really makes for a happy life? A dream job, a bigger house, or a new relationship? If you’re always hungry for the next big thing, but frustrated because it never seems to satisfy, you might be Chasing Carrots. It’s time to hop off the treadmill and chase after something real! Join us for a series about things we commonly chase after that only bring fleeting happiness, fulfillment, or validation.

Affection Misdirection

September 29,2019 by Mark Stuenzi Message 1 of 5

When we look to and depend on something to give us what only God can give, it becomes an idol. We chase after things that will ultimately never satisfy us. We were made to worship only one- the one true God.

Distraction

Technology can be a great thing. It gives us directions, plays our favorite music, and we can even read the Bible on it! But we have become so addicted to technology, we run to it as fast as we can for a distraction. Instead of running to our iPhones and iPads when we hurt, run to God first.

Fame

Fame isn't just for the Hollywood celebrities. We desire fame by posting a good-looking picture for new Instagram likes or boasting about our expensive vacation. Step away from trying to climb up the ladder, and run to the cross instead.

Money and Stuff

Having money and material possessions is not a bad thing. In fact, God wants us to enjoy those things. But when we start to want more and more and forget about the blessings, then we are chasing carrots. Our material possessions are only temporary, but God is eternal.

Perfectionism

Sometimes we feel like a failure when we don't measure up. Fear creeps in and we don't use our special gifts that God has given us because we want to be perfect. God loves us, accepts us, and values us more than we can ever know. Put fear aside and start doing what God has called you to do.
