Life On The Treadmill
“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.”
The Big Idea: If you live your life centered around the physical world only… Your life will be a treadmill, and your companions will be disillusionment and despair.
The living at least know they will die, but the dead know nothing. They have no further reward, nor are they remembered.
Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.
The Teacher’s perspective is limited to this physical life only.
The Rest of the Story
1 Corinthians 15:32
And if there is no resurrection, “Let’s feast and drink, for tomorrow we die!”
1 Corinthians 15:20
But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died.
Question #1: Have you gotten off the treadmill long enough to assess your life in the way the Teacher did?
Question #2: If you are convinced that there is a spiritual life as well as a physical life, which one are you living for?
