Ecclesiastes 2:11. Yet when I reflected on everything I had accomplished and on all the effort that I had expended to accomplish it, I concluded: “All these achievements and possessions are ultimately profitless-like chasing the wind! There is nothing gained from them on earth.”

We are in the season of buying. Stores have increased their hours and advertising. We’re told we need all sorts if things and should be giving all sorts of things. Many of us are already surrounded by too many possessions. Yet when we look at all we have accomplished to accumulate where are we? Have any of these things brought glory to God or brought us closer to God? There is nothing wrong with giving things to others but let us be sure we give them the best and everlasting thing. Let’s pass on to others the way to receive God’s gift of forgiveness and eternal life with Him.
