  1. I had to take a second look at the verse. It caught me off guard with the “earth abides forever”. For those living without true purpose life and earth cycles do seem to go on forever with no hope for “those under the sun”.
    Your verse actually fits will with my last post, Who Then? God bless you and yours, and thanks for causing me to stop and think about what I was reading.

    1. What a timely with both our posts, Donna! It must be a coincidence or directed from above. You are right, without the TRUE purpose, “life and earth cycles” is meaningless/pointless “without hope in this world” in the aftermath of life. I still have to go back and reflect deeper on all your recent posts; I promised myself a month ago to do that. Looking forward to chat with you in your blog! Blessings to you, your family, and your ministry!

  2. How meaningless life and work, pleasure or labor is when we do it merely for ourselves! But when we live, work and play coram Deo, how filled with purpose and meaning, doing all to His glory! What a great pick for the graphic, Kent! It gave me a start. πŸ˜€
    Grace and peace to you and yours,

    1. Definitely, I agree with you, Dora! It should be coram Deo and what we do/live for is meaningless/pointless when we don’t do it for GOD’s glory. Also, true that anything that we labor for and build in GOD’s presence, acknowledging Him as the Source, and seeking His wisdom, does give purpose and meaning to it as He is glorified. And making GOD part of what we do, sanctifies us even if it is just a typical mundane work. Thank you Dora, I’m grateful to GOD for these bunch of pictures (by Thomas found in Pixabay) that its allegory fits this series, surprisingly. Thank you for introducing the term “coram Deo” and had I known this, I could have a different title for the series. Blessings to you and your family!

    1. Thank you and I’m grateful to GOD for this relevant image. Yes Mandy, it will ultimately be depressing without GOD nor without the hope of salvation. Blessings to you and your family!

    1. Yes, when we toil (“under the sun”) without GOD, it is meaningless in the end. Whatever was gained in earth, remains in earth unless it is invested (Matthew 6:19-21) on heavenly treasures. Blessings to you and your family!

    1. Thank you for leeting us know that it is your favorite! Thanking GOD that Fryday seems great by the looks of the emoji! πŸ˜‰ Grateful to GOD for leading people to you my friend! πŸ™‚πŸ‘ Oh that crock (system/greed/corruption/decay) will eventually eat that person so it is pointless to take a rare shot of its mouth; it would be best to aim the camera for what is inside the stomach. πŸ˜† Blessings to you, your family, and your ministry team!

      1. Aha! I appreciate your explanation of the crock.πŸ˜ƒand his next meal.πŸ˜†
        We had great conversations with people on this Fry Day Clark. Even with one such woman who told us , without holding her breath, that she was God.πŸ˜‚

        1. Thank you, Crissy! Not only that croc had a camera but also a watch that sounds wherever it goes, just like in Peter Pan. What a Fryday experience you have Crissy, πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘with different interactions with people and how they viewed, reject, or received GOD. That is GOD’s gift actually, because it makes you appreciate Him for His grace 😊 and also makes you affirmed what GOD says all along in the Bible on the condition of humans. We can reflect on those things 🧐 and a missions journal is a best way to place it, like a kind of “all in the days work” meets “laughter is the best medicine” of Reader’s Digest.
