~~ Even the most beautiful flower will wilt after it blooms in all its glory 🥀 ~~
This morning my heart feels “uneasy”. I have felt this kind of “emotions” several times before.
Just like the King Solomon says in Ecclesiastes 1, “all is vanity”.
Have a read at the whole chapter, here I’m just going to write some from verses 8-9,
“All things are full of weariness;
A man cannot utter it;
the eye is not satisfied with seeing,
nor the ear filled with hearing.
What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun”.
Then I come in to my studio and the picture above is my view, it resonates with my heart at the “right” time.
Following the world trends and fashion will not take us anywhere further if we look it from the eternal point of view,
and even to have a “happy family”, “good children”, “healthy and happy marriage”, “stable and good paying job”,
“successful business”, “excellent grades” – in thousand years time from now, would all of these still matter…?
Eternity means “a state to which #time has no application; #timelessness”.
If we are to live in eternity even after we pass away and not be bounded by our mortal body anymore, would the things in this world matter…?
If not, what matters then?
What kind of faith matters?
What kind of obedience matters?
What kind of worship matters?
What kind of pursue matters?
What kind of passions and zeals matter?
Whose kingdom matters?
Whose beauty matters?
Whose honor matters?
“I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and striving after wind”.
