Text is from Ecclesiastes: bible.oremus.org/?ql=431860600
There is nothing new under the sun.
Not when they're worried they can't go to Walmart without being murdered, they don't.
You can perpetrate the greatest mass murder in history, but you can't give your life meaning.
Well, yes. For Ecclesiastes, just going about daily life and finding satisfaction in it may be the best anyone can do.
Have a job that you like and keeps you afloat? It's from God.
Got an extra grand and you're not caught between police and thieves? God.
Know a thing or two? God gave you that too.
By no means!
It is in God, and specifically in Jesus, as Christians claim, that our lives find permanence and a direction home.
When we empty our lives for others, we find fullness in our own.
