Pursuing Pleasure

No one has the opportunity to pursue pleasure like a rock star; yet Mick Jagger "Can't Get No Satisfaction"!  

I see this as proof that the words of the wisest man who ever lived are true:  
"I said in my heart, 'Come now, I will test you with pleasure; enjoy yourself.' But behold, this also was vanity. I said of laughter, 'It is mad,' and of pleasure, 'What use is it?'" (Eccl 2:1-2)
Yet David the Psalmist was also right: 
"You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy;at your right hand are pleasures  forevermore."   (Psalm 16:11)
Pursue pleasure and find vanity. Seek God and find joy. The choice is ours.
