Living Life To The Brim!
|Ecclesiastes 11 (NKJV™)|
|7||Truly the light is sweet, And it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun;|
|8||But if a man lives many years And rejoices in them all, Yet let him remember the days of darkness, For they will be many. All that is coming is vanity.|
|9||Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, And let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth; Walk in the ways of your heart, And in the sight of your eyes; But know that for all these God will bring you into judgment.|
|10||Therefore remove sorrow from your heart, And put away evil from your flesh, For childhood and youth are vanity.|
|Ecclesiastes 12 (NKJV™)|

A wise pundit once wrote, "Your life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you can spend it only once." Each of us is assigned just one shot at this thing called life. There is an eternity that we are all moving toward. So much of that eternity is shaped by how we live our lives right here and now, and that is one of the sobering thoughts with which Solomon chooses to close his journal. His theme is: Life should be enjoyed to the fullest-within proper boundaries!
