The Weight of Stupidity

Life is vain.

Ecclesiastes makes this point clear and most humanistic Christians try their hardest to disprove the point. “Solomon wouldn’t have said that if he lived after Christ,” I’m told.

Yes he would because Christ, after all, is the author of Ecclesiastes. Solomon says that even if you accomplish great things in life, the idiots who come after you will undo your work and be stupid anyway.

Moses, upon entering the Promised Land, told the Israelites that they would break the covenant and rebel against God. “behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?”

Moses was not allowed to go into the Promised Land, an outcome I maintain was just fine with Moses. Who wants to be with these guys any longer? He tells Joshua, “Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people.”

Many lament how a person’s work was thrown away after their death, how all they accomplished was reversed. Those who are dead would roll over in their graves if they knew what was taking place with what they did.

Our service on earth is to be done for God, not for people. There is no satisfaction serving people or things; there is only satisfaction in serving God, knowing we will receive what we deserve for what we’ve done in the body.

All other motivation will crush you, defeat you, or if nothing else, will completely waste your life.

“For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
