Devotion. Empty Inside? Make Life Count

Ecclesiastes 12:13 (KJV) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

After trying everything the world had to offer, power, prestige, wealth beyond our imagination, sex, accomplishments in building, shipping, even literary and philosophical pursuits, and more, the wisest man who ever lived summed it all up as superficial and worthless.

In the end, he came to the truth. The meaning of life is to follow and serve God. Solomon tried it all and found it empty.

Lord, help me learn from Solomon’s bad choices and not follow His path of bad choices. Help me, instead, follow You and make my life count for something today.

Deuteronomy 13:4 You shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you shall serve him, and cling unto him.
