brian-williamsNY Times writer David Brooks reminds us, in his musings about the Brian Williams scandal, that accolades and man’s praises are never enough:

“There’s something sad in Brian Williams’s need to puff up his Iraq adventures and something barbaric in the public response.

The sad part is the reminder that no matter how high you go in life and no matter how many accolades you win, it’s never enough. The desire for even more admiration races ahead. Career success never really satisfies. Public love always leaves you hungry. Even very famous people can do self-destructive things in an attempt to seem just a little cooler.”

Folks, we all look for something in this world to complete us. The gospel says, “Christ alone completes you. Christ makes you acceptable to the One who matters most.” Remember today Psalm 107:9 “For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.”
