The amount of material written and the amount of data and advice coursing throughout the immaterial world of the web, one would think there would be nothing else to say. However, I shall again add to the blog another saying. My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh (Ecclesiastes 12:12). The wisdom of the teacher within the pages of this text declares that study causes weariness. Weariness because much of the data to consume is vanity and vexation of spirit. No one knows the time of their expiration or what will produce success or failure. Time and chance happens to them all. Because many events happen to the good and bad many or disillusioned by being good. Sometimes the sinner simply prospers in doing sinful things that bring attention to millions. Book deals are made and so on. Why be good if I can do evil and be rewarded? Because all things will be judged by God.
The day of ones death is not the finality of our existence. Done? I think not. You simply pass from this life into the next. It is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment (Hebrews 9:27). Judgment? Yes! The Lord Jesus Christ measures and sees the good and the bad and without him, passing the judgment and entering heaven is impossible. We all sin and fall short of God’s glory. If you’re saying right now that this is religious nonsense, think about how sin has affected your life. If sin has not caused you tears and shame then keep pretending you’re done. I for one think not.
