(2) See 1:19; 3:15; 5:10,20,45; 6:1,33
(3) We seek wrong things

(b) Looks delicious and inviting, but like cotton candy
(c) Doesn’t nourish or fill
(d) Like real happiness, Spirit’s power, witnessing skills

c) We ought never to be content with our spiritual condition
(1) Must ever be sought; never in the grasp
(2) Avoid things which spoil spiritual appetite
