Topic : VANITY IS THE WORLD
(Competing With Another's Success) Ecclesiastes 4:2-4
Our father and our most powerful Jehovah whose dwelling is in the heavens, you are wonderful for real I the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. We sincerely thank you for this morning and trust that you prosper the new day for our good that many may return to glorify yourself in us through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
As the years runs to end many are event taking place around the world and I mean very ungodly matters that seems unbearable to the hearing of man. Things that get God angry, very destetable things for the sake of acquiring material things for themselves. With this we are going to take study on the writeup of Solomon the king of Israel as derived from the Ecclesiastes.
King Solomon is one of the most famous man in the entire world, not that alone he is the man that has enjoy more than anyone has enjoyed. Enjoy 300 wives, 700 concubines, wealth of all kinds from all across the world and even to the detriment of his own people. Yet he has this to say about all he had acquired to be vanity.
‘It is better to be dead. That is better than to be alive’, I said to myself. ‘The most happy people are those who have not been born. They do not see the bad things that happen on the earth.’ We do not like other people to have more than we have. That is why we work for many hours each day. That is why we try to do very many things. This, too, is like somebody who tries to catch the wind." Ecclesiastes 4:2-4 (EasyEnglish)
Yes! Many motivational speaker that have every spoken about living has always taught on how one will be better than another. And because of this all many have been challenged to step up in life at all cost even at the expense of another without compromise. Indeed such act is crazy, ungodly and for real VANITY for the dead and unborn will never have such mindset.
This new week I pray that God will by Himself prosper the work of your hand in Jesus mighty name. Amen. As you do your work diligently before men with the fear of God, Jehovah will cause you to dance better for GREATER TESTIMONY as promised this month of November in Jesus name. Amen.
Think right friend and don't be crazy about getting wealth at other people's cost and run from competing with the success of other. Sincerely it just like intending to catch the wind in your wallet. VANITY IS THE WORLD indeed. Happy new week and a good morning.
