"...Vanity of vanities, " says the Preacher; "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity." What profit has a man from all his labour in which he toils under the sun?" - Ecclesiastes

"For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?" - Mark 8 V36

Consider this, the world's wealthiest and wisest man saying "All is vanity", and this is so true. People do everything they can to become rich or wise, but at the end everything earthly perishes. What we earn or save on earth remains h ere and cannot be taken to the next world. All the worldly knowledge we gain dies when we leave this world. So, what profit it is for a man to gain the whole world? But there is one thing that we can treasure all through eternity and that is our salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord! Our Lord promised that all the service we do for Him will be remembered and awarded in the kingdom of God. Men on earth work for a perishable outcome, but those who serve God work for an non-perishable crown. Let us invest wisely on earth, not in gold or silver that perishes, but in serving our Lord. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
