Pointless and Empty

Today's reading: Ecclesiastes 1:1-11

Today we begin our trek through Ecclesiastes. King Solomon, King David's son and the wisest man to ever live, is the author of this Book, which delivers a strong message on meaningful living. Solomon is, no doubt, a deep-thinker, and that comes across right away as we start into chapter 1. His approach is a little different in that he presents us with the a picture of what living apart from God looks like (vanity, pointless, worthless and empty) in order to highlight the opposite-the importance of having an eternal mindset and focus as we live out the days God has given us here on earth.

How has reading about and considering the constant and monotonous routine of earthly life impacted your thinking today? What did Solomon's words convey to you about the importance of eternal-minded living? In what or where are you placing your focus, hope and expectations? Tami
