Have you ever asked yourself this question?
Maybe you have answered it for yourself. I’ve heard many answers:
“Make the most of it!”
“Achieve something great so I will be remembered!”
“Have as much fun as you can!”
“Leave a lasting impression!”
“As long as it looks like I am having a great time, particularly on social media— eat, drink and be merry!”
The wisest man to ever live, and also one of the richest — King Solomon— set out to answer this question. He had more resources than any of us can ever imagine and experienced all that life had to offer. His conclusion can be found in the Bible in the book of Ecclesiastes chapter 1 verse 2:
“Meaningless! Meaningless says the teacher. Everything is meaningless!” (NIV)
However, this is not the end — the last verse of Ecclesiastes says
“Here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.” (NIV)
If you want more meaning in your life, why not start by reading the Bible and develop a relationship with God and His son the Lord Jesus Christ?
