I worked so hard: Ecclesiastes 2.18

“So I loathed all the fruit of my effort, for which I worked so hard on earth, because I must leave it behind in the hands of my successor.”

Ecclesiastes 2.18

At the funeral of a rich man, one friend asked another, “How much do you reckon he left?” The other replied, “All of it, I’m sure.” Solomon knew this many centuries ago.

Life “under the sun” (excluding God) is depressing. Only God can give it meaning. Only God can bring us purpose that will last beyond this earth.
