|Chasing the Wind|
Ecclesiastes 2:11 NIV Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun.
We must not allow work to shut out our service to God. Work and deeds must be kept in perspective.
Work from a CEO to a trash collector is important. Some would question the need for a Pastor.
Pastor suggested that when a Pastor leaves a church that he should sever ties with his former congregation. There is no place for vanity and we must not take ourselves too seriously.
What does our “work” do to make a difference? James says work brings joy. I planted another watered and yet another reaped the harvest.
On the walls of a university and also hospitals, and some churches, are photos of past Presidents, directors and Pastors. These are reminders of those who left us a legacy. They established us with skills and equipped us to help others.
We are not just chasing the wind.
