Have you ever wondered what our purpose is on earth? Ecclesiastes 11 says it’s to love God and enjoy Him forever—not just to serve or obey, but to find happiness.
As we instruct our children on how to live, let’s be sure they have a lot of fun when it’s the years for having fun. Let’s also be sure to keep them from disillusionment.
Don’t wait until you reach some magical age to start enjoying life—start now! Don’t take a single day for granted.
Are you someone who’s waiting for “some day” to accomplish your goals? It’s time to stop preparing and start living! As long as God gives us breath there is a life we need to realize here on earth. And we need to live it.
Everybody gets older whether you admit it or not. The question is, “Will we grow sweeter, or will we rot?” Once all the children have left the nest and two people who honeymooned together 25 or 30 years ago are left to “start over,” how can they resist negative tendencies and stay young at heart? How can they support one another's growth toward spiritual maturity?
Although we’re living longer than ever before, one day our bodies will return to the earth and our spirits will return to God. Now is the time to remember Him in all our thoughts and deeds.
Our souls will find no peace until we remember our Creator. Now is the time to remember Him in all our thoughts and actions.
There’s nothing like talking to someone who has been there to learn what it’s all about. Where are you looking for answers to learn the meaning of life? Take it from King Solomon, you won’t find it in anywhere but in Christ.
Since all of us will “return to the earth” and since our spirit “will return to God who gave it,” now is the time to remember Him in all our ways.
The book of Ecclesiastes ends with the rebel back in the pulpit, now that his heart and soul are above the sun.
