Ecclesiastes 6:12 For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?
We do not understand near what we think we do about life. Our life is very short. It has no real purpose apart from knowing God. All the things that men try to get and be in life will soon belong to someone else.
There is only one way that life is not empty and purposeless. That is by knowing God. He is the reason for our existence. He knows what comes next. He is what is important in life. We want to serve and honor Him.
This life will soon be over so only how we live for God will count. Don’t waste the few moments you have!
