Contentment and Commission

This is an interesting quote that I pulled from the GetReligion blog which I regularly read. It is part of an old interview with Charlton Heston. He is reflecting on how playing the part of Moses in The Ten Commandments changed him and he says,

It is interesting to note that once Moses climbs Mt. Sinai and talks to God there is never contentment for him again. That is the way it is with us. Once we talk to God, once we get his commission to us for our lives we cannot be again content. We are happier. We are busier. But we are not content because then we have a mission — a commission, rather.

Wise words. How content are you? Have you talked to God? Have you heard a commission from him?
