Ecclesiastes 7-12…A short life.
Death is certain for all. Ecclesiastes 9:5 says, “The living know that they will die.” For some of us that day is closer than we think. The sensible person faces up to the fact of death and makes provision for this final episode of his earthly life.
There’s only one way to prepare for eternity — trusting Christ as Savior. Those who come to God through Him will enter heaven when they have drawn their last breath. But for unbelievers, that fateful moment will seal their never-ending doom.
Are you ready for the inevitable? Jesus said, “He who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life” (Jn. 5:24). Live today with an eternal perspective, and store up treasures in heaven. The earthly things that occupy our affections are fool’s gold, but God is our lasting treasure, and loving Him is so much more satisfying.
