The finding of purpose
Soul Snack 14/12 ... The finding of purpose
The eyes never have enough of seeing,
the ears never have enough of hearing and
the mouth never has enough of speaking.
That which hapens upon earth is endless. The rhythms of life continue with equal certainty to death proceeding breath, relentlessly they intersect with the chances of life.
The losses of life are as fleeting as life's gains - the laments are as transitory as the joys.
Man toils to sow to a harvest for himself that may go to another or that he may reap. This he does not know.
In the cycles of life, in the uncertainty of work and the vagaries of health let him look high alone - to where his help comes from. It is the God of the heavens who has numbered his days, who waters his harvests and sets his chances.
Let man in all his days consider his maker who both builds up and blows away, who searches the mind and examines the heart so that at the appointed time he will find a welcome into the heavenlies.
I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings. (Lk 16:9)
