Ecclesiastes 1-3; Psalm 45; 2 Timothy 1

“Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless!” (Ecclesiastes 1:2)

GOD wants us to think about our purpose and direction in life, just as Solomon does in the book of Ecclesiastes. Having everything, he quickly realizes that without GOD, “everything is meaningless, completely meaningless.”

I have distinct and clear memories of every March getting a pair of my favorite shoes on my birthday. I would be so “hyped” to get them. I am a child of the late 80’s/early 90’s and “hyped” was the word, lol. Yet, once I got the shoes, I could not cause that moment to have a greater meaning.

We may try to find purpose in material things, but without God, it is all in vain. God is the ultimate director of our lives. He orchestrates the symphony of events that lead us to our true call and a life of profound meaning. Imagine the cacophony of different instruments before the conductor takes his place. But when the conductor raises his baton, all the disparate sounds harmonize into a beautiful, meaningful song.

Is GOD conducting your life’s affairs? If not, Solomon has some words for you…
