Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
It doesn’t take many years for a man to realize that life is vanity just like the wise man tells us. Time and chance happens to all. You work for something and find out that it wasn’t what you had hoped for.
Money isn’t the answer. Life is vanity and so to keep life from being just vanity we must do only two things. We must fear God. We respect Him.
We seek out His will. We must decide to please Him in all that we do. Once we decide that then we begin to seek out His commandments and try to obey them. This is the whole duty of man.
We were made for His pleasure. Many commandments if not all are to ensure us a life of higher quality but obeying rules for rules sake makes life a burden also but when you realize that all the commandments are to help you do what you were made to do then life has purpose.
We are to fulfill the Great Commission. That is all that will give us purpose in life. He made us to serve Him. We are to take the gospel to the world. That can get us up in the mornings and keep us all day. That can make life worth living and not just a vanity.
