A High Goal, Not a Dream

Why be content with a dream? A dream never satisfies. The Bible speaks of dreaming of eating and drinking and on awakening still being hungry and thirsty (see Isaiah 29:8). Yet today ways to induce dreams are much advertised and made glamorous.

Fiction with little purpose except to create a momentary illusion of adventure and romance occupies much of television and popular literature. Drugs and drinks devised to make one forget troubles are sold legally and illegally. Leaves, roots, and chemicals to smoke or swallow are intended to create the illusion of peace or dominion or to make one think he has had a spiritual revelation. None of these things satisfy, for when the dreamer awakens, the illusion is gone. Problems and limitations are as serious as before, often more so.
