11-6-15 All is Vanity

all is vanity

Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.

Ecclesiastes 12:8 KJV


Don’t get caught up in all this world displays;

You’ll soon forget the reason you are here.

Most everyone you know is in a daze

Believing these illusions are sincere.

The moment you are born the show begins,

And all the lights and sounds will mesmerize;

You’re told the more you have the more you win,

And told the more you know will make you wise.

It’s vanity; all this is meaningless,

For Jesus is the only thing that counts.

He’ll guide your way around this awful mess;

There’s nothing in this world He can’t surmount.

This place is not your home – you’re heaven bound!

Now spread the gospel – help the lost be found!

    “All that glisters is not gold;
    Often have you heard that told:
    Many a man his life hath sold
    But my outside to behold:
    Gilded tombs do worms enfold.
    Had you been as wise as bold,
    Young in limbs, in judgement old
    Your answer had not been inscroll’d
    Fare you well, your suit is cold.” – William Shakespeare’s play The Merchant of Venice

    Let us realize that GOD is our focus and not things or money Matthew 6:24

      Thank you, sweet sister! I do enjoy some Shakespeare in the morning, even though it ultimately is vanity, haha. Of course, if we look with the mind of Christ, we can find him everywhere. Someone once said “If you do not find God in the next person you meet, it is pointless to look for Him any further.” With the eyes and mind of Christ we will see the lost with love and compassion; we will see them from the soul outward; we will see the image of God and see their need to be brought to the cross. We will see ourselves in them and be filled with love, hope and faith.
