(Matthew 5:6 NIV) Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
(Romans 3:10 NLT) ... No one is righteous--not even one.
(Ecclesiastes 1:18 NLT) The greater my wisdom, the greater my grief. To increase knowledge only increases sorrow.

(Ecclesiastes 12:12 NIV) Be warned,.... Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.

(Ecclesiastes 2:10-11 NIV) I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refusedmy heart no pleasure. My heart took delight in all my labor, and this was the reward for all my toil. Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun.

(Ecclesiastes 2:17-18 NIV) So I hated life, because the work that is done under the sun was grievous to me. All of it is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave (can't take it with me) them to the one who comes after me.

(Ecclesiastes 5:10-11 NIV) Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless. As goods increase, so do those who consume them. And what benefit are they to the owners except to feast their eyes on them?

(1 Kings 11:3 NLT) (Solomon) had 700 wives of royal birth and 300 concubines. ...

(Ecclesiastes 4:8 NIV) There was a man all alone; he had neither son nor brother. There was no end to his toil, yet his eyes were not content with his wealth. ...

(Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 MSG) The last and final word is this: Fear God. Do what he tells you. ... And that’s it. Eventually God will bring everything that we do out into the open and judge it according to its hidden intent, whether it’s good or evil.'

(Proverbs 21:21 NLT) Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor.
1. God's space in our lives stays OCCUPIED. (band width full)

• There is SIMPLY no SPACE.

(Isaiah 55:2 NCV) 'Why spend your money on something that is not real food? Why work for something that doesn’t really satisfy you? Listen closely to me, and you will eat what is good; your soul will enjoy the rich food that satisfies.'
2. You don't really KNOW how good GOD is.

• Willful IGNORANCE.

(Psalm 34:8 NIV) Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

(Ephesians 3:18-19 NIV) may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
1. Right STANDING with God.

(Romans 1:17 NLT) This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, "It is through faith that a righteous person has life."

(Romans 3:25 NLT) ... People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. ...

• RIGHTEOUSNESS comes through RELATIONSHIP with God.
2. Right LIVING on earth.

• Right life come by DOING WHAT HE SAYS.

(Ecclesiastes 12:13 MSG) The last and final word is this: Fear God. Do what he tells you....

(Ecclesiastes 12:13 NLT) That's the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone's duty.
