Reading along with us in Ecclesiastes? Here’s today’s reading:

Ecclesiastes 1 (ESV)

The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.

Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher,
    vanity of vanities! All is vanity.

That everything outside of God’s purposes are meaningless, regardless of what we apply our efforts to. And yet if we compare this with a thought from the New Testament, that whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it to the glory of God, it infuses everything with a higher purpose to glorify Him. The conclusion? everything done outside of God is meaningless, ie has no eternal value, but everything done to God’s glory is meaningful because it has eternal value if it is done to God’s glory.
