Daily Devotion: Is This All There Is?

Bible Reading: Ecclesiastes 12:8-14

Key Verse: Verse 8- “Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity."

Key Words: Vanity of vanities

Solomon looks at life and says “vanity of vanities.” Is this really all there is to life?

I remember distinctly one Christmas all my children being gathered around in great anticipation of opening the gifts. The gifts had been voluptuously wrapped with ribbons, and my kids were excited. Paper began to fly everywhere as they hurriedly unwrapped all of their gifts. The gifts had cost a lot and they had been well packaged. With great vim and vitality, the children began the process of unwrapping them. However, I remember the statement that was made by one of them after all of the gifts had been unwrapped. The question was, “Is this all there is?” Evidently, some of you have experienced that. Many of us have unwrapped life and we want to know if this is all there is.

The answer to the question, “Is this all there is to life” is yes and no. Yes, this is all there is when we live life for self; but no when we live life for Christ.

So, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

What to do:
✞ Live life for God...that is our duty.
