Humans have always tried to find meaning in pleasure. We always want the next big thing and always believe once we have that thing (the car, the cottage, the phone, etc.) we will be happy.
The reality is these things don’t satisfy because God has set eternity in our hearts.
“Most people, if they had really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world.”
