I recently had the opportunity to listen to Jeff Cavins' new CD What Ticks You Off And How To Deal With It. Jeff makes use of the Epistle of James to help us understand that our dissatisfaction here on Earth is due to our endless search for happiness in people, places and things that are of this Earth and not in God where true peace and happiness are found.
Detailing the four levels of happiness - immediate gratification, personal achievement, serving others, and infinite love - Jeff helps us to recognize that only when we turn our earthly desires into heavenly ones, will we find the satisfaction and contentment we are searching for.
Using funny stories, real-life experiences and scripture, Jeff engages the listener and invites you to take a closer look at how you handle your passions and reactions to situations that you wish to avoid. It is too easy to fall prey to our desires for things of this world and we must always remember that our reward is not in this world but in the eternal realities of the next.
