26 June 2019 – Ecclesiastes 9:8 (NIV)

Scripture

Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil.

Reflection

Life is meaningless. without God.

No matter how much you plan something out of your strength, it is futile. No matter how hard you try to build your wealth, you can lose everything in one moment.

Life is meaningless without God.

Even if by a miracle we succeed in all our earthly plans. The truth of death still confronts us. But in God, we can take solace that He has defeated death, and as Christians, we will be raised with Him into a permanent presence. Our value and significance doesn’t rest in earthly possessions or our own wisdom. But in the fact that we are being justified in Him and that we have a calling to live our lives worthy of Him and to tell others about this treasure we have found.
