Ecclesiastes 1:1-3:22; 2 Corinthians 6:1-13; Psalm 46:1-11; Proverbs 22:15
says the Teacher.
Everything is meaningless.”
What does man gain from all the labor
at which he toils under the sun?
Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
The eye never has enough seeing,
nor the ear its fill of hearing.
What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.”
Ecclesiastes 1:2-4, 8-9
“What does a worker gain from his toil?
I have seen the burden God has laid on men.
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men;
yet they cannot fathom what God has done
from beginning to end.
I know that everything God does will endure forever;
nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.
God does it so that men will revere him.”
The Monday difference is Jesus.
Waking up knowing that He will be with me
throughout the day
gives meaning to the
everyday tasks at hand.
“He makes all things beautiful
in its time.”
Beauty from ashes,
joy from sorrow,
hope from despair.
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Thank you Jesus for being the meaning of my life. You are the reason for my work’s purpose as the wife, mother, daughter, neighbor, volunteer, friend, writer, photographer, encourager, thinker and pray-er that I am. May my words and actions and thoughts this day bring you honor and glory and praise. In your name I pray, Amen.
