About two years ago, I decided to embark on finding out what life is all about. I was led to read the whole book of Ecclesiastes, and I did. I was amazed at what the conclusion on the matter was in the entire text of Ecclesiastes. Let's find out.
An essential thing in life is not how we start something. The different stages and seasons are all critical, but the ultimate is how we end it, and God wants us to end well.
What is the purpose of it all if all you came to do on earth is to walk to and fro on the surface of the planet with no goal and purpose? You would have achieved nothing, and you would have lived life rather unfulfilling.
God has a plan for all of us, but we have to allow him to work on us. We have to be all we can for him every day; allowing him to work in us, help us develop our talents and capabilities to the fullest
Better is the end of a thing than the beginning of it. Ecclesiastes 7:8
The conclusion of the matter to life according to Ecclesiastes 12:13, “Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.” in your quest for everything in life, make sure you fear God and keep his commandments, and this instead comes with a price to pay.
Father, help us fear you and keep your commandments all the days of our lives. Shalom
