Fear God And Keep His Commandments

What’s important in life? What matters? Those are questions man has asked himself throughout history.
Years ago, a man named Solomon was asking the same questions. He decided to try various things to determine what brought him happiness. He tried wisdom.. he tried pleasure… he tried labor…. But when he had tried everything, he came to one conclusion;       “Fear God and keep His commandments because this applies to every person” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
“Fear God and keep His commandments…” Solomon is saying that after he tried everything… he came to the conclusion that fearing God and keeping His commandments brought man meaning in life.
What about you? What’s important to you? What do you spend money on? Where do you invest your time?
I have known people who are consumed with happiness. Their life is driven by having fun. There is nothing wrong with having some fun but there is more to life than that.
I have known people who are consumed with work and making money. Certainly work is honorable and there is nothing wrong with making money if it’s done the right way… but there is more to life than work and making money.
The fact is; every man or woman will one day die… that is a fact… and when we do, our lives will be judged. And when we are judged, the one thing that will matter is our relationship with Christ. That’s it.
It’s not how much fun you had or how much money… it is about your relationship with the Lord.
Today, do you know Christ as your Savior? Are you living for Him? Those are the two most important things in life.
