Live Like You’re Dying

“Meaningless! Meaningless!”
says the Teacher.

“Utterly meaningless!
Everything is meaningless.”

What does man gain from all his labor
at which he toils under the sun?

-Ecclesiastes 1:2-3

I believe what Solomon was looking for and perhaps lacked was love! Love is what man can gain, though it cannot be earned by labor. Love is a gift. Love gives us meaning. Love gives us hope. You were made to love.

You can’t earn love but you can give love. Live like you’re dying today and make that extra phone call. Who do you need to say “I love you” to?

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. -1 Corinthians 13:1-2
