Sound Advice from a Dying Monarch

happiness1

Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.

Ecclesiastes  11:9

King Solomon had everything. Greatness, knowledge, power prestige, everything that a human soul could misconceptualy desire to find happiness but evidently King Solomon clearly define all of those things as vanity, chasing after the wind.  Inspite of everything the end of his life was terrible. I remember our  pastor once  said :  “Solomon’s life drew an end under the punishment of affliction and frustration.” The life of Solomon has been a great example that worldly things doest mount to anything but temporary enjoyment and happiness.

Cease to chase after the winds and takes this advice from a dying Monarch

1. You are accountable to God for your life.  (Ecclesiastes 11:9)

-regardless of what you learn in school.

– what the world tell you

To go to heaven is completely different as facing God when you’re there for judgement.

2. Set  your priorities right early in your life.

-God should be the priority of your life.
