Reflection: In all his wisdom, Solomon concludes the book of Ecclesiastes in poignant terms:
“…Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all.” –Ecclesiastes 12:13
Despite the sometimes vanity-ridden aspect of life, despite the fruitlessness we sometimes feel, our point, our purpose is the keep God’s commandments. In that, we will find our all.
Application: What is God asking you to do?
Prayer: Jesus, may we recognize the fruitfulness of following You. Show us Your hand. Keep us as we seek Your will. May our hearts be humble that we may see You–just You. Amen. And Amen.
