A devotion based on Ecclesiastes 1:2.
Ecclesiastes is a book about searching for the meaning of the life. The preacher looks at all of the pleasures that this world has to offer and attempts to take them to their logical conclusion. One would think that something here would make him happy. His conclusion? “Vanity of vanities! All is vanity.”
Despite the research of the preacher, people continue his same experiment. They are desperate to find something that fulfills so they try all the world has to offer. Look at the celebrities of Hollywood. They seem to have everything. They have money, mansions, power and looks. And yet it seems that every week there is a divorce or a revelation of substance abuse. Vanity of vanities! The only true fulfillment is that of a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
