Favor In the Middle

Ecclesiastes 5:15

Naked a man comes from his mother's womb, and as he comes, so he departs. He takes nothing from his labor that he can carry in his hand.


This scripture shouldn't inspire anyone not to aspire for more just because you can't take it with you at the time of death. God desires us to want wonderful things on Earth. He only becomes jealous when we idolize these things before Him. Every day, we should remember that although we come in and leave with nothing, God still provides everything we get in the middle. Today, be thankful for what you receive in the middle; cherish it, but don't idolize it. More importantly, don't let it separate you from your love of God.
