CONCLUSION

Let us remember that our lives are not intended for VAIN EXISTENCE, but for the accomplishing of God’s purposes. As such, let us be MINDFUL of our DIVINE APPOINTMENTS and GOD’S MISSION for us!

Otherwise, we will just be like Solomon in his backslidden state.

Ec 1:2 “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher, “Vanity of vanities! All is vanity.”

3 What advantage does man have in all his work Which he does under the sun?

8 All things are wearisome; Man is not able to tell it. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, Nor is the ear filled with hearing.

9 That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.

10 Is there anything of which one might say, “See this, it is new”? Already it has existed for ages Which were before us.

13 And I set my mind to seek and explore by wisdom concerning all that has been done under heaven. It is a grievous task which God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with.

14 I have seen all the works which have been done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and striving after wind.
