Lead singer Chris Cleveland headlines the group Stars Go Dim. While this band is known for its pop sound, Never Enough slows down the pace with a classic ballad. My initial impression of the lyrics is of a person who is never satisfied, always wanting more in life. Subsequently, I was led to Jesus’ words in the passage below. When you start to seek God first, all your needs will be met.
But seek ([z]aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness ([aa]His way of doing and being right), and then all these things [ab]taken together will be given you besides, Matthew 6:33.
Unfortunately, people like me possess a perfectionist spirit that seeks the unattainable. Anyone who tends to be a workaholic also struggles with the empty feeling of never being satisfied. May the lyrics of Never Enough speak to unhappy Christians who need an attitude adjustment. When your priorities begin with seeking God’s first and His righteousness, everything else will fall into place.
