By Retired Senator, John Grant (Florida)

We live in a culture that is never satisfied and always desires more: More money. More clothing. More toys. More square feet. More followers. More power. More wealth. More prestige. More reputation. More sex. More. More. More.

In fact, in many ways, the pursuit of more defines our entire society. But there is a problem with the lifestyle choice of desiring more. When we constantly desire more, we are never satisfied. Because no matter how much we accumulate or achieve, more always exists. By definition, it is unquenchable.

No matter how much money is in your bank account… there can always be more. No matter how big your house… there can always be more. No matter how many likes on your Instagram post or views on your Tik-Tok video… there can always be more.

When more is the goal, we never fully arrive. It is insatiable. And that is the problem with always wanting more. Happiness and contentment will always elude us if we are looking for it in the acquisition of more.

Is there something more than “MORE”?


Jeremy Stopford’s column is late again because he is on a mission of mercy in the deep south.
His failure to deliver doesn’t make sense to the editors, inasmuch as Jeremy claims that he can get his “Moxie” from Moxie, and they sell that old soft drink by the bottle at Cracker Barrel. After all, Jeremy is only in his 70s. Seriously, please pray for him as he strives to bless the lives of others. And hopefully Moxie’s column will be back next week.

Of course, you can always check out earlier columns. Just click on the Jeremy Stopford link above.


“Resurrection Morning …”

When the artist’s two little boys first saw this painting, they ran from the room in stark terror. When a Bible college professor saw it, he was offended because the man seen kneeling in the grass was naked. When the artist’s wife saw the painting, she understood that these men had made their decisions. One was clothed in the righteousness of Christ alone, and the other had chosen the path of death.

But look deeper!


After you've read "Saving Jesus," please give me your feedback. Thanks!
