I think sometimes new is equated with better. Maybe that's why the divorce rate is so high. If I can just get a new husband things would be better. New things are often used to buy happiness. If I had a new house, or a new body, then I would be happy. But it rarely works that way, does it?
New things can't make us happy. Why? Because the new soon becomes old.
Only the newness that comes from Jesus can truly satisfy. His"new" brings peace and contentment.
And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. Ezekiel 36:26
