In the End

I love the book of Ecclesiastes. It’s a great book. It was written, probably, by King Solomon, the wisest man to ever live.

And in this book, he goes through everything a person could every seek to know or achieve. He deals with work. Please. Even religion. Everything.

And he goes through all these things, and in the end, he find this – it’s all vanity.

It’s all not what it’s about. We spend our time chasing these things. We spend our time running after these things. We spend our time trying to achieve these things.

And then we get them! And then, well, what. We still feel empty. We still find something missing. We still are like, what’s wrong.

Listen to what he tell us today in Ecclesiastes 12:13-14:

The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.

In the end, it’s this. Be faithful. Love God. Love others. Do right.

It’s not complicated. It won’t make everything perfect or easy. But it’s where it starts. It’s where life is found. It’s what really matters. Not in all of this.

So, today, focus on what matters. Focus on what really counts. Focus on what will last. God. Faith. Family.

We will never be empty when this is our focus. May we spend our life on what truly counts.
