Well, like the preacher said: (King Solomon)
Ecc 8:14 There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous: I said that this also is vanity.
Ecc 9:9 Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.
Ecc 11:8 But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.
Ecc 11:10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.
Ecc 12:8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.
From all that, one would think that life is just a waste, for it seems that no matter what one thinks or does, all is vanity.
Which brings us to only one conclusion, and that is that there must be something other than this life where it all matters.
And God presents that other life as a spiritual awakening as a meaningful way to go.
For an example my life: I was born again at age 13. I mean by that is that I accepted Gods gift of life, and made my life and everything in it worth living, for I was satisfied in knowing and believing that after this life, I would receive the remainder of my new life begun here on earth.
Perhaps, you can tell by my writings, my tolerance, compassion for all individuals regardless of their beliefs?
For onces I was in the dark of knowledge and short of understanding, but now I see the light of Gods wisdom and gained understanding.
