Food For Thought

14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind.


The book of Ecclesiastes covers Solomon’s studies on living life without God. In his living, Solomon lived life to gain great wealth and succeeded. In his living, Solomon lived life studying science to gain great knowledge and he did. In his living, Solomon even participated in prodigal living and had the wealth to do so.

In his return to the Lord, Solomon looked at that manner of living and had concluded on thing. Living life without God in it was meaningless. Solomon concluded that when he was not living for God, there was no point to anything he did. Solomon was left empty on the inside. There are many people living in the world today that believes that life is meaningless. Is this true? One has to consider what they are living for.

You see, God did not create us to live a meaningless life. The Lord does want us to prosper and to be happy (Jer. 29:11). The problem that many people run into today is the way they live can never satisfy the soul. As Solomon said, for life to be worth living, one should look to God and His wonderful blessings. In God there is life for the soul. In God, there is peace and joy for the soul. In God, there is fullness.

Be sure to read this scripture – Ecclesiastes 1:12-18; 12:13-14
