Even Tom Brady Isn’t Satisfied

Tom Brady has everything going for him. He’s living the life that most guys dream of. For starters he’s the quarterback of the New England Patriots and this year led them to an undefeated regular season and a berth in the AFC Championship Game. But he’s not knew to success having won three Super Bowls, twice being named the Super Bowl MVP, and having been selected to the Pro Bowl 4 times. He is currently in a contract that pays him $60 million over 10 years. Not only that but he dates actresses and super models with the latest being the Brazilian Gisele Bundchen.

So I guess that’s what makes this quote from Brady’s interview on 60 Minutes last December all the more surprising:

“Why do I have three Super Bowl rings and still think there’s something greater out there for me? I mean, maybe a lot of people would say, ‘Hey man, this is what is.’ I reached my goal, my dream, my life. Me, I think, ‘God, it’s got to be more than this.’ I mean this isn’t, this can’t be what it’s all cracked up to be.”

What’s the answer?

“I wish I knew. I wish I knew,” says Brady.

Blaise Pascal said that every human being was created with a God-shaped vacuum in their heart that can only be filled by the Creator made known through Jesus Christ. You can fill your heart with fame and wealth and good looks and success galore, but it won’t satisfy you. Only Jesus can do that.

John 6:35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”
