Our oldest four children had their last day of school Thursday. Another year in the books! I am thankful for their school and for the education they are receiving. I am also thankful, though, that they don’t find their purpose and meaning in their education.
After talking about our need for following God’s direction according to His Word, Solomon said, “But beyond these, my son, be warned: there is no end to the making of many books, and much study wearies the body” (Ecclesiastes 12:12).
The reality is that if we try to find purpose and meaning in anything or anyone besides our Creator, not only will be be disappointed; we will fail miserably and for eternity.
“When all has been heard, the conclusion of the matter is: fear God and keep His commands, because this is for all humanity” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
This morning I preached on the “Futility of Life,” challenging those in attendance to look to God’s Word for their purpose and meaning. You can listen to the message and/or others by clicking HERE.
In what or whom are you finding your purpose and meaning? You’ll never be satisfied, and more importantly, you’ll never be right with the One who created you with purpose and meaning unless you surrender to and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
