What are you searching for?


Eccl 10-12 Down through the ages, men have searched for many things; answers to health dilemmas or answers to why things happen, and searching for the meaning of life.  King Solomon was given wisdom beyond what you or I have, yet even he searched for the meaning of many things in life.  God gave him wisdom, yet even he concluded in the end that all his searching was futile and much about life was incomprehensible except to God.  His conclusion to this matter was to “Fear God and keep his commandments because this is the whole duty of man.” [Eccl 12:13] And why should we do that?  Solomon said that in the end, “God will evaluate every deed, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” [Eccl 12:14]

So what are you searching for?  Stop spinning your wheels searching and instead: study God’s inspired Word, which is profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness.  [2Tim 3:16] In this, make it your goal to “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” [2Tim 2:15]
