When is life meaningful?
Verse
“Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of
man.” Ecc 12:13
Thought
Lord gave wisdom to Solomon. There was no man in the whole world; who
was as wise as Solomon. He sinned “Solomon did evil in the sight of
the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD” 1 Kings 11:6, Lord warned
Him twice but He did not heed. “And the LORD was angry with Solomon,
because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel” 1 Kings
11:9. Then Solomon lived with His wisdom but with out God. Lord was
faithful to His promise; He never took way His Kingdom, Wisdom or
Power. Solmon having materially everything in life, Solomon felt there
is no meaning in life. “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” Ecc 1:2. Without
Jesus in your life everything will be meaningless.
Solomon understood why He failed in His life and gives solutions.
“Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of
trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no
pleasure in them” Ecc 12:1. First and foremost remember the Lord
always; bring glory to Him by the way we live. Second “Fear God and
keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.” Ecc 12:13.
Work out your salvation in fear and trembling, do not take grace
lightly. Let holiness be our priority and righteous to our shield.
Prayer
Sorry, Father for taking you so lightly. Forgive me, and give me a
heart of obedience and live a life fully consecrated to you alone.
Amen.
