We spend our whole lives working just to survive and in the end, what does it matter? Without Jesus, it’s just early things that we collect. Without Jesus, our loves are just dust in the wind.
Solomon was the wisest man and he understood that it is all just vanity. We collect material things and go into debt and work our lives away to serve a government who enslaves us. Freedom is an illusion when you enslave yourselves by thinking material things matter. Truly, the love of money is the root of all evil.
Most of us have approximately 70 years on this earth and we spend 50 of it slaving away. In the end, our labors are literally just a joke. It all returns to the earth in the end.
Civilizations are buried beneath the ground. Lives lived. Yet, every day people continue hopelessly busting their ass for what? A sliver of the pie?
Take a moment, smell the roses, enjoy what little time you have on this earth. Say a prayer for those suffering. Take time to find God in everything beautiful. Above all, hive your heart to Jesus.
Serving the Lord is not hard work. Its spending time with your best friend. No one can ever love you like He does. He understands you better than you understand yourself. After all, He created you. He knew you before you were ever even born.
Remember to stop and appreciate what time we have on this earth. Stop serving the god of material things and instead, enjoy the peace God can give you.
